Viper Half-Century Songbook

Under Construction

So I’m starting in earnest to pull together my “Viper Half-Century” songbook. This will be a compilation of 50 Viper songs I wrote before I turned 50. Wait’ll you hear the sequel in 2068! Here, I’ll be posting my progress as I incorporate files for each of the song pages linked to below. Each will have at least a PDF version of the lead & chord sheet for each song, plus the Midi mp3 created from the software I used to create the music which should help you follow along with the music even if you don’t read music.

Most pages will also have audio & video of Viper performances. And eventually the songbook will also include ukulele chord diagrams, artwork, and introductory context.
