Daniël Berg: Mallet Ensembles - Vol.2
Mallet Ensembles - Vol.2
As many kids, I started to play drums and later in the teens I got in contact with the melodic percussion… and I was stucked! With the songs in Mallet Ensembles I have an attempt to awaken a young drummers curiosity for marimba and vibrphone. Therefore I use repeated technical patterns in the chord parts, quite easy to learn, but a little bit tricky and fun for a drummer to play.
These three songs are orchestrated for a couple of mallet instruments - to get a rich and "fat sound", please double each part on both marimba and vibraphone in several octaves. The glockenspiel part is grade as easy, melody part is a little bit harder and chord parts intermediate.
