The Thunderbird (show tune)

Heres a tune for people that have good fingers that enjoy fast entertaining tunes. It sounds very good with electric guitar and drums but needs to be played at speed to get its full effect.

Quite effective in the right hands, or should I say, fingers. While I love the traditional stuff, I also like to see some efforts toward showmanship and innovation, too. This rhythmical piece would go well followed by a nice, melodically strong 2/4 march.

You do play it at this speed??

I enjoyed it!
-David.

Thanks Guys, Yes once I have warmed up I play it at that speed, it is very effective and gets everyones attention. BUT, it takes alot of practise to get your fingers around it and even I sometimes get in a mess with it. :lol: But I just thought that If anyone wanted a show piece of music for a challenge I would offer this one.
Thanks
Roy
