The highest regard goes to all singers and musicians. It is your original moment that you make the music present.
Please only play your original music and arrangements. Know the limits of copyright relative to similar words and sound.
Specifically avoid any copyright music unless it is yours or you can make it yours.
The public domain is waiting for your music.
All works published in the US before 1923 are in the public domain.
Works published after 1922, but before 1978 are protected for 95 years from the date of publication.
