Ballads

Well, there are lots of great ballads written but here are two I wrote:

Little Bird - has a bit of a ragtime feel in the middle strain
December - pure ballad written during a December snowfall

Novelty Tunes

Here are a some more great American tunes that I recorded when I played with Doctor Drums and the Ragtime Kidd.

Yes Sir That's My Baby
Camptown Races
Oh Susanna, Dust of that Ol' Piana

NOTE: Theses songs can be purchased for $.99 each by download.

I also play many Jazz Standards, Rock and Roll and lots of popular songs.
