Fixing A Hole

After a little rehearsal and one run through, this recording is pretty good. Things we can fix (pun intended) right away include:

A slightly slower tempo
More separation on the 8th notes in the beginning (listen the the recording)
More bass
Clean up the solo

Getting Better

Overall I'm happy with this arrangement. As with all of the other songs, we need to clean up a few things. Here are my initial impressions:
Clarinet intonation in the beginning on the 8th notes
Horn and trombone need to match the duration of the quarter note part in the band it's a little long
More Bass!
Bigger conga sound

Sgt. Pepper

This is the opening piece. The flutes are playing the melody to reinforce the vocals (which will be provided by the chorus). We need to clean up measures 16 and 17, but overall I think it works.

With A Little Help From My Friends

This is the vocal version of "With a Little Help". I can't wait to hear what it sounds like when we add the chorus and clean up our entrances a little bit.
