My Songs

I have written dozens more original songs than those listed here and can also play dozens more cover tunes (songs written by other people), but the songs listed here formed the core of my live performances in late 2013. Lately (2014) I have come up with several new songs that I play more and more often than those listed here. I'll add them here once I give them names!

When you ride over sharps, you get flats!
Long Hair Red Baron
What Can I Say? Legalize
Bouncy Evolution
Early Morning Hours Over Me
Up The Hill Entropy
Traveling Oh! Jennifer!
Tray Dipper Over the Rainbow

This as yet unrecorded album has some of my best older songs and some of my newest songs with a cover tune at the end.


More Original Songs

Cover Songs
Dream On (Aerosmith) Over The Rainbow (Israel Kamakawiwo'ole)
Sister Golden Hair (America) Dust in the Wind (Kansas)
Help! (The Beatles) Sleeping Sun (Nightwish)
Blackbird (The Beatles) Behind Blue Eyes (The Who)
More Than A Feeling (Boston) Hey Hey My My (Neil Young)

I have been playing some of these songs for decades. In 2012 I learned Over the Rainbow and in 2013 I added Sleeping Sun and Sister Golden Hair to my repertoire.


Novelty Songs
Fish Heads (Barnes & Barnes) Lava Lamp (Bubbly) (Christina Grimmie & Sarah)
Smelly Cat Medley (from the Friends Again album) One Big Family (Christina Grimmie & Sarah)
Getting Paid (Christina Grimmie & Sarah) Tray Dipper (The Bicycling Guitarist)

I learned Fish Heads and Smelly Cat Medley in 2012, and in the spring of 2013 I added three fun songs from the Above All That is Random video series on YouTube by Christina Grimmie & Sarah. Tray Dipper is a parody I wrote of Day Tripper by The Beatles.

In May of 2014 I published a songbook that uses Lego models I designed to illustrate many of the lyrics to the three Above All That is Random songs I cover. Two versions of this songbook are available for free download in the ubiquitous Adobe Acrobat PDF file format:
