Kick drum, rainmaker, wind chimes, guiro, claves, triangle, shaker, and sleigh bells - Lee Fitzsimmons


This woodland-flavored composition is straightforward and simple. The twin acoustic guitars ring some high-pitched chords using different inversions as the kick drum and acoustic bass set up the beginning groove. The guiro along with two sets of differently pitched claves play a coordinated figure, giving the introduction a very distinctive color that continues throughout the piece. When the flute enters with the main melody, the entire ensemble begins playing the main groove as the rainmaker pours water over the mix. This tune consists of three sections that repeat until the song fades. At the end of the first section, the flute begins jumping octaves as it simulates the flight of a butterfly or a faerie. The sleigh bells enter at the beginning of the second section and the guiro and claves drop out. In the third section, the melody merges with the underlying harmonic structure and the two become one. The entire form then repeats several times before the piece ends.
