Steve Peter also supplied the following YouTube links for songs he used in his sessions on October 27:
One Bright and Sunny Morning – Rob Amchin

Sesere eeye – initial movement/steps tutorial

Sesere eeye – performance demonstration

Pass the Beat Around the Room – Australian Instructional video

I Am Slowly Going Crazy – Original song (clapping sequence added as song progresses…single clap on one; double clap on two..etc.)

Bring Me Little Water Sylvie – dozens of YouTube tutorials available

Take Me Coco, The Dopplers – clapping sequence begins at 2’40”, but the entire YouTube post is full of interesting rhythmic and stylistic features (7/4 opening’s my favorite)
