10 fantastic new blues duets for the violin and viola. If you play grade 3 standard and upwards you will really enjoy these pieces. They are in a variety of blues styles from rock to latin to swing, and each duet sets a new challenge. The brief sample recording is of three duets from the collection played on Clarinet, Flute and Saxophone.

10 Blues Duets are

  • fully compatible with the other volumes in the series…great for mixed ensembles.
  • fully articulated to help develop that sense of blues style.
  • great for helping with jazz blues rhythms.
  • road tested with scores of students.
  • fun to play.
  • great as stand alone pieces without the second part.

Titles o Stupid Cupid o Bacon Butty o Piano on My Toe Blues o Sick as a Parrot o Silver Skeleton o Monkey Business o Italian Job o You’ve been Mangoed o Woody’s Lament o DeeVeeDee

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.
