Description

The title It's in 4 comes in the form of an answer to a question that was posed during a parade in which this cadence was utilized to "coordinate" the footsteps of the performers. In this case, the performers were the members of the Santa Clara Vanguard, the questioner was an SCV staffer (who shall not be named), and the "questionee" was drumline instructor Murray Gusseck. The dialog went something like this: "That sounds like $&#. What $*%*#@^ meter is that in??"

Gusseck's answer became the new name for the cadence. And now It's in 4 has been refurbished and shined up with new life for your listening and downloading pleasure. Clocking in at over two minutes, this behemoth has some old school and some new school mixed together that would challenge anyone. The piece has been tweaked for increased playability and less ticks, so don't be afraid to dive in and start swimming.

Just remember that if anyone asks you what meter it's in…"IT'S IN 4, STUPID!" (Maybe don't use the word stupid.)

This piece is available as a Single User part (one part, no score, licensed to one user), or an Ensemble Set (score, parts, licensed for one ensemble to perform). For more details on legal usage of downloadable sheet music from Tapspace, click here.
