8-bar blues in C-dorian. 8-bar preferred to the more usual 12-bar blues for this piece as, in combination with the 5-time, it imparts a lively restless character. The title (for those who don't know) is the answer to the question "What's the difference between a duck?". (If English is not your first language, don't worry too much about this!) It seemed a suitably quirky title. The structure is: intro, theme, 3 sample improvisations in differing styles (A: percussive and harmonically wild, B: elaborated version of theme, C: melodically freer) before restatement of theme. Written for my daughter Jessica on piano, with a bass part simple enough for myself. NOTE ADDED OCT 2001: I have taken up several of Roger Freundlich's ideas in an arrangement of this for a larger ensemble entitled "The Other Leg". My daughter has has not yet played the original version much. She seems to prefer Beethoven - I can't imagine why.

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.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.
