Class III: September 15th In-class group performance I
ATS Musical Breakdown, buy The Huntress by Gypsy Caravan on itunes or amazon.com MySpace ATS clips:Silver Wolf Clan zill and WildCard zill Article 3: Zill basic information If you are buying your first pair of zills, I recommend going for a small to medium size (the bigger, the heavier--not conducive to relaxed learning if you're muscling through the motions). Make sure to get something with engraving if you're buying sight-unseen or don't know much about zills--this will prevent you from getting the plated "circus monkey" kind that will sound tinny and may chip the plating if your'e a rigorous player. Saroyan has a good selection; if you look elsewhere make sure you buy 4 (2 for each hand).
