    Here's one that I wrote for a student not too long ago. Not really beginner level, but maybe you can steal a few ideas.

    Any chance you could post or send me a rough audio clip for this?

    Thank you for posting the clip --very helpful! I'm fine with notes, terrible with rhythm, so having the clip really makes it happen. -Wayne
