"Running Laps" is my newest CD of arrangements using The Leavitt Tuning for 6 string Lap Steel.

The song list for the CD is:

  1. All Of Me
  2. Stardust
  3. Quiet Nights and Quiet Stars
  4. Ebb Tide
  5. The Way You Look Tonight
  6. Moon River
  7. Theme from Mr. Lucky
  8. Over The Rainbow
  9. Song of Old Hawaii
  10. If I Loved You
  11. Theme from Peter Gunn

Just like "A Different Slant" you can order the CD of my performances of these tunes and/or the TAB Book which comes with a play along CD of the background tracks.

Listen to the clip to hear short segments of some of the tunes to get an idea of how they sound.

If you enjoyed "A Different Slant," you'll really love "Running Laps."

Thanks, Mike
