Video #1: Here is a video of me playing the old time tune "Over the Waves."

"Over the Waves" (Sobre las Olas) - The tune as we know it was adapted from the longer and more difficult waltz titled "Sobre Las Olas" which was written in 1884 by a full-blooded Otomi Indian by the name of Juventino Rosas. In Mexico he is known as "King of the Waltzes" and there is even a town named after him.
