Since I live in Indianapolis, the ending fits!  “Colts, Go Blue!”  But you can re-arrange it to fit YOUR needs!

Some of the team rhythms can be changed to more naturally fit the way they are pronounced.  This is just how I laid them out.

HOW I USE THIS RAP!

1.  Rhythmic canon

2.  Rhythms quarter, two eighths, quarter rest

3.  Transferred to drums, adding ostinati

4.  Transferred to pitched percussion for improvisation

Halloween Round

Posted by lbbartolomeo on October 18, 2012

Take the classic round “Ah Poor Bird”, which is minor and perfect for Halloween and change the words.     https://songwheel.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/batpumpkin.jpg?w=300

“Pumpkin eyes, glowing bright, bats and other creatures fly through the night.”

For movement, get in a circle and on macro beat take two steps in, two out, claw scratch up high twice w/right hand, twice w/left.

An alternate idea is two steps in, two steps out, then flap bat wings while stepping in a slow personal circle. (4 steps)

Here’s the music.

A Winter Version

       Winter wind, through the trees, snowing blowing weather can make you freeze!

MOVEMENT

Winter wind  (arms go sweeping to the front and up to shoulder level, then down)

Through the trees (repeat above motion)

Snowing blowing weather (arms straight over head with flutter fingers for the snow, arms slowly come down as it “snows”)

Can make you freeze. (rub arms like you are cold)
