Hi Swing Band!

“We have decided to make a Swing Band virtual video of  Woodchoppers Ball”.

The music, the click track and a quick video of the choreography are all on this page, just scroll to the bottom and you will see our Swing Band links.

For everyone who hasn’t done one of these before it is really simple. All you need is a phone to record yourself playing and another device to play the click track through a pair of headphones.

The click track has 2 bars in and then starts, if you could clap on the fourth beat of the first bar intro ( there is a clap on the click track )

As usual with Woodchoppers ball we WILL still be doing the choreography during the 4 times repeat at the end.

The choreographing is as follows albeit slightly changed for lockdown:

TRUMPETS

First time Start left and up
Second time Start left and down
Third time Start left and up
Fourth time Start left and up

TROMBONES

First time Straight
Second time Start right and down
Third time Start right and up
Four time Start right and up

ALTO SAXES

First time Straight
Second time Straight
Third time Start left and up
Fourth time Start left and up

TENOR AND BARI SAXES

First time Straight
Second time Straight
Third time Straight
Fourth time Start right and up

Hopefully this makes sense.

Finally, please make sure you camera is recording in LANDSCAPE please

Good luck with recording and any problems please contact me either by email (address below) or our WhatsApp group”.

Thank you,
Helen
