    I like to play Embraceable You or Misty, with a little improvisation.

    St. James Infirmary then the beginning of Haydn Trumpet Concerto Allegro for contrast. Sometimes intro to Fanfare for the Common Man.

    Quick thanks to whoever started this thread. Gave me a lot of potential new songs to learn, although Mack the Knife was already on my bucket list.

    My current repertoire is a small one, so if I get asked, which is rare, I default to something easy like Abide With Me, Be Thou My Vision, or maybe Bach's Air on G String.

    I found another link to an Aranjeuz PDF, that looks good and is easy to print:

    Ya'll have a heckuva great weekend.
