Hi Everyone –

I agree with Chris that this board has been dead for the last couple of weeks. Lets see if we can get back into the swing of things.

Everyone please list your top 10 favorite marimba pieces. Its cool if you only feel like listing 5 instead of 10 solos. Hopefully this will lead to some great discussions and exposure to great marimba repertoire.
