    The music was pretty fun to play, and i liked the bluesy feel. I am a trombone player, so I felt that, even with the high notes, it was a very good piece for a low brass instrument.

    I am just a typical student, but I play percussion in the school junior band, and one of the music the junior band plays is Jus' Plain Blues. It was the first music we ever got actually. Jus' Plain Blues is a fun and easy music peice to play, so...

    if your looking for an easy jazzy peice to play, Jus' Plain Blues is for you! Here's a tip: It'll sound better if you make the suspended cymbal part a swing rhythm where it gets simple.
