Bass drums from Simple Gifts

Hi, thanks for finding this arrangement. I did this one using the marching band template, so if you need to play add-a-part, just do it! I like this one because I started it out extremely simple (just the melody) and then added more and more complexity to it until the song gets to its huge ending. I hope you enjoy this arrangement! You’ll note there is no percussion part in the main score. There is a recommended bass drum line in the parts section if you’d like to use it. I’ve also made a slight tweak to the music to try and match the original first verse of Simple Gifts as much as possible. MP3 file created via Kontakt Player.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
