Description

The Guardsman is Danny Raymond’s tribute to his father (also a drummer) that starts with his dad’s favorite rudimental drum lick. Written specially for a rope tension snare drum, the piece has a classic throwback feel that will make you want to play along.

And speaking of playing along, Danny has written a simple bass drum accompaniment part that is suitable for any level of player, so you can perform the piece as a duet! To download the bass drum accompaniment part for free, click here.

This piece comes as a bound folio containing the sheet music, performance notes, a notation key, and even warm-up exercises specific to the piece!

This solo was extracted from Danny’s 9-solo compilation DVD Let It Rip. The DVD contains not only printable PDFs of the sheet music and performance videos of each, but also tips & tricks, warm-up exercises, interviews, and more. For more info, click here.


Performance by Danny Raymond. Extracted from the Let It Rip DVD compilation.

Instrumentation

  • Rope tension snare drum*


Note: If one is unavailable, a field drum or otherwise low-tuned large snare could be used instead. A bass drum would also be required to play the option bass drum accompaniment part.
