⭐️How to play Darude Sandstorm on Recorder
I have divided this song into three main parts.
By studying these three parts you will be able to play most of the song since it is longer but they are small variations with a few notes.
If you play these three parts on your recorder you will be able to get the song by yourself.
The first part is the introduction to the song. It is a good. It’s a good place to start learning the song since you will have to play the same motive that will last throughout the song.
The main rhythmic motive is four sixteenth notes on the same note, in this case the note B
Intro of Darude Sandstorm
Darude Sandstorm part 1
What we call the first part of the song is mostly rhythm.
The note you have to play is all the time the same, as always you should listen to the audio that is before the recorder score.
As you will see this time we only have to play the note B, at the beginning we have to make a stop with a short note, even if you see an eighth note written you have to play it with staccato, this means that you have to cut its value.
An eighth note with staccato is approximately equal to a sixteenth note.
Then you must blow semiquavers with the note B continuously. This is done with the help of your tongue to make the notes fast and short.

Part 2 of the song can be the most fun of all because it really has the most variations of notes. These variations make the melody more interesting because it provides melodic jumps to break the rhythmic monotony of the sixteenth notes.
I’m not going to fool you, you’re going to have a hard time playing this song because of the speed it requires. Don’t forget to always practice much slower than the original tempo of the song and help yourself with the reference audio that I put before the score.
