Tuba Man, Tuba:  4:22.  The solo is for a trio of tubas, or any combination of tubas, baritones, or euphoniums, with a wind accompaniment. The selection is meant to show the possible ranges of tubas, and the technical skills needed in the performance of low brass instruments. The simple snare drum sets the mood for the opening introduction of the three solo low brass instruments.  After the short introduction, each solo instrument begins development of the technical and upper range of this section. During this development of the rhythmic material, various combinations are exposed in duets, trios, and unison parts. Before the ending, small interval pieces of the main theme prepare for the final chromatic decent to the ending note, and one extra last note.
