Guide to Imploding band scores
I'm looking for a step by step guide for taking a band score and "impoloding" it for piano. I get the basics, but it's the cleaning up part that I have a problem with, the extra rests and the stems going opposite directions and the duplicate or triplicate beams for a single pair of notes. I'm lost on the Exchange Voices 1 and 2 function.
(I'm a keyboard player in an 'event band'. We have horn charts for the bigger gigs wherein we have a horn section. I'd like to reduce those down for nights when it's just me covering those parts.)
I've done a bit of searching, but mostly it's bits and pieces of answers. Surely this is a common question, reducing a multi-instrument score to something a piano can manage. Can someone point me in the right direction? Is there a comprehensive post or video somewhere I haven't found?
Thanks in advance
