Welcome

  • costume: black pants, bright colored top (preferably no design, but with some exception)

Cold Run

Spot Check

Hedge Trimmer
  • This is when everyone plays together again, so make sure to start in sync
  • This is the "peak" of the song, so make BIG motions. Especially the first 2 hits (jya jya): "heave-ho" from your chest.
  • "Taunt": Play A or B, whichever you are most comfortable with.
Runaway
  • At the end of "Gotta Go", make sure to extend the right arm as far as possible and keep it so into the next hit (the beginning of "Tassajara".
  • Play "Retreat" immediately after the last hit of "Taunt"
    • su~ dogo su~ godo su~ dogo gododa
Cronkite
  • Kuchishouga + air bachi
    • Keep a consistent tempo and emphasize/listen for every-other right hits. Make sure the hits correlate to the kuchishouga.
    • dagadagadagidagodon
KLarC/Joan of Arc
  • Widen the range of volume during crescendo/decrescendo. Playing this fast gives us a limit to how loud we can play, therefore...
    • During the decrescendos, play very very soft by the end. Make the audience question if you're even playing.
    • Crescendo from that "very very soft" point.
  • Think of every transition as an event.
Other Notes
  • TRY NOT TO SPEED UP. Try to keep Seiji's initial opening tempo.
