I actually did this one about a year ago, but I completely forgot it and just found it in my Arrangements folder. This is Finale audio of my big band arrangement of "B.Y.O.B." by System of a Down. Like the original, it's an angry-sounding chart in an relatively unusual key for big band - C-sharp minor. It has some "mood swings" throughout, but the quarter note pulse/subdivision remains constant.

1st and 2nd trumpet kick the chart off by trading some double-tonguing insanity (with optional easier parts). No solos. 5/4/4 + 3 rhythm.

I haven't yet found a band that could play this well... but if you think you have a band that can do it, let me know and I'll send you the chart!

As for the strange URL: The audio is hosted on CloudApp. It's clean and legit. :)
