Thread Name: 'little' songs
Subject: RE: 'little' songs
The great majority of the story songs I typically sing run from 2 to 3 minutes; some only a minute and a half. One has to understand that this is solo vocal with guitar or banjo, and most of them without much of a musical break between verses. I do try to work in between-verse turnarounds, which may run 5 or 6 seconds, but that doesn't add much length.

What variety of song are you interested in? My repertoire is, as I say, almost entirely ballads, story songs, many of which are very old in their roots. A large proportion of them are, if not outright funny, at least of good humor. If this sort of thing would fit what you're looking for, I probably can help.
