Be honest, the tuba isn't one of your favourite solo instruments, is it? Generally confined to playing oompah in the back row, there is a real lack of good music for the instrument. So here is a new publication, called Let's Play Tuba, with tunes and a playalong CD, long overdue I think. The nice thing is they've published three versions: C Tuba, E flat Bass (TC and BC) and B flat Bass (TC and BC). They're on my stock list for my next order.
