    Imagine a time when you wake up everyday, and you don’t find a pc, or a tv around your house, what do you do to entertain yourself?? obviously… play the piano..

    Hi there,
    I refer to your page on Errol Garner Solo Transcription on Lullaby of BirdLand and the youtube clip. On this clip there are several tunes including One Note Samba by AC. Jobim, and On the Street where you Live but I could not find Lullaby of Birdland at all in it.
    Just to let you know.
    I find your site extremely useful and thank you for that.
    Regards
    Andres.
