"I combined both percussion books into 1 book using Sibelius. I am not using a djun djun, I own one but there is no space for it. I am not using Timpani, I listened to the music and watched the parts and the timpani were mostly used for accented hits that I cover with my beautiful 1920 Bass Drum with calfskin heads! I am employing Miller Machines for both a triangle and a finger cymbal. I think I stayed true to the parts and it has been a blast getting to know this music.

Oh yea, due to a cut I didn't have to use a gong, we cut from the first gong scrape to the next tune so I put that scrape on a deeper cymbal which saved me some space as well.”
