Description

In Guac is Extra, John Herndon has done a fantastic job of providing an engaging piece for young percussionists to dialog with traditional Latin percussion instruments without their needing traditional hand drumming skills. Played entirely with sticks, the piece contains elements of groove, syncopation, and timbral contrast. The performers also have the opportunity to play solos, which helps develop their ensemble awareness and sensitivity. 

This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.

Instrumentation

Drums (bongos, congas, timbales, 2 large toms)

Suspended cymbal

Accessories (woodblock, guiro, cowbell)
