Song samples available soon

Me with my Scottie Marin, sadly no longer with me.I purchase ALL my songs, usually from the ITunes store or I buy them on CDs. Most lyrics are available online. I pick songs because I really like them and also based on my ability to SING the song. Sometimes, I find a song that I can't do at first but I keep working at it. Most of the time, my voice keeps improving and eventually, I'm satisfied. 

I'm adding new songs all the time and my total as of March 2014 is about 300 songs with 11 of those as instrumentals. I also now have almost 60 more coming down the tube. All my songs are very much copies of the original. I try to have the same backup instruments playing the same content as the record. I capture the exact tempo when I first import into Band in a Box to get the chords. Then, as I develop my version of the song, I listen to the MP3 a lot and try to mimic the voice of the singer. I sing an Elvis song a lot differently than a Bobby Darin song, for instance. I decided that people going to hear 50s & 60s music may not want to hear MY rendition of a song, so I'm trying to do a faithful reproduction as much as possible. Hey, I do my best!
