Music for "Oriental Dance"

Dear List, Several years ago you may recall that I attempted to learn to play Chinese Picnic.

Thank you for the kind comments Greg, I'm working on high-quality mp3 versions of the piano accompaniments which will be made available here. I really like your playing and the tone you get from your banjo.

Best,

Mike

Having those mp3s will be such a huge service for practicing, musicality, and playing with more than just a metronome! I can't wait to try them out!
