Song Samples

So. Here I am at 65 sending in an audition recording.  I hope to participate in the Musicians On Call program and they need to be sure I sound OK.  Former students, check out this program๐ŸŒž. You are all flung to the four corners of our world, so you can do wonderful things… in addition to the wonderful things you already do.

One verse and chorus of โ€œThe Cat Came Backโ€ and Dwight Yoakamโ€™s โ€œFast As You.โ€

Sound example expires July 24ish.
