On the violin I like playing a Saraband by Handel. It is what I use to warm up. It is not too slow or fast and it is beautiful.On guitar, I like playing " Like Strangers". It is a country song I learned a while back. And I like "Too Far Gone"too. It is an Emmy Lou Harris Song.It took me a while to learn it but it was worth it.

On the guitar I love playing "Perhaps love" by John Denver. It sounds so mild to me. On the piano, my favorite is Gertrude's Dream Walts by Beethoven, Minuet from Don Juan by Mozart, Waltz in E Flat (sorry I also forgot the composer) Love and Devotion but I forgot who composed it. It's an old song. Maybe you know it.

On the classical guitar it would have to be either Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, a cello suite of Bach's (whose name escapes me but you hear in commercials everywhere) and "Nocturno" by Moreno Torroba (which no one has ever heard of) although John Williams does a very good version of it that I like to emmulate. On electric guitar I almost don't know where to begin so I think I'll limit it two songs: "For the Love of God" by Steve Vai (my improvised version is kind've a trade mark) and Groove or Die by Andy Timmons. Both of the above lists could go on forever, because it all depends on what mood I'm in as to what is my favorite song to play.
