Songs Available for Request
Below are the songs that I know, sorted by the level to which I know them (the ones I know best are in the top section and my level of comfort goes down from there.) I'll make an attempt at any song you want, but if it's not on this list (or lower on the list) it might not be pretty, or even doable if I don't know the song and/or it's too hard for me to figure out on the fly. If you're going to request a song, a tip would be greatly appreciated!
You can send me a message via the "Let's Chat" button in the bottom right of the page, submit a contact form, or write your request on a small piece of paper (I should have sticky notes by my tip jar) and give the song request note to me in between songs. Lastly, place your tip in my tip jar or visit the virtual tipping page and I'll play it! (larger tips will get priority)
