Create your own solo for Purple Haze!

You will create a 16 measure solo for Purple Haze and perform it in class.
-use elements from the piece including parts of the melody, rhythm, or extended technique sounds
-your solo must be on the instrument you play in orchestra
-your solo may be fully composed, partially composed, or completely improvised
-you will be given a (20 point quiz) grade for your performance (full credit will be given to everyone who completes the assignment)
-you may volunteer to play as early as Friday 5/6
-Ms. Jayson will begin calling on people starting on Monday, 5/9
-solos may not have more than two consecutive measures of rest

 We are using the chords (Fmaj Fmaj Ab Maj ,Bb maj) from letter "A" (mm. 11-14) as our accompaniment 
The solo section(s) will be inserted between mm. 41 and 42 (before the violins move to col legno). After the solo(s) we will continue on into mm.42

Get Crazy!!
