Oh, and give that bass player a bonus!

ROG.


Hi ROG
it was fun to do from start to finish. That Bass Player worked really hard and I didn't even have to buy him a pint!! Result!!

Hi Tom
No pup change - I used neck+bridge throughout (special mod on my Strat) and just moved hand position forward or back.
Glad you liked it.
Cheers

Thanks for the "ear candy".


Hi Don
I guess a bit of Shads will be in here as I am a big fan.
The palm muting is a very "Shadows" thing. Lol
Fine to let Nokie hear it.
Cheers
Ian

It's a done deal, Ian. I emailed the link to Nokie.

Unfortunately, the timing is terrible because his 86 y/o mum-in-law is in hospital and doing poorly. I think music is far from their minds right now.

I think he's coming home this weekend.

Ian,

Fantastic! A truly enjoyable song to listen to. Beautiful, melodic playing - with nice variation in technique... A good mix. Love the pace of this... had me bouncing in my chair!

Nice.

Hi Floyd
thank you for taking the time to listen and for your humbling comments. Its just a Pop Noodle really but fun to play.
At 165bpm it would have ANYTHING bouncing! grin
I took a leaf out of the "FJ Book of Music" and took time to audition a few instruments for the backing, especially the drums. Must have run a dozen or more before I dropped on the RockTexas big sloshy hi-hat sound. Reminds me of the "Mad Drummer" videos on YT. And no apologies for including that Accordion again. Its a super RT.
Our granddaughter Freya rocks around to this as only a 2.1/2 year old can. Fun to watch.
thanks
Ian

Hi Scott
thanks for the feedback. The tone is via one of the secret weapons on my Strat - a pull pot for Neck+Bridge selection.
Glad you liked it.
cheers

Hey Ian,

Wow! Even my computer monitor was rocking along with this one. The melody and its arrangement are awesome, and your playing is spectacular. I'd love to hear some words to this.

All the best,
Noel

Ian,

I should have dug out my old black horn rim glasses as I listened to that. Or posed with my tennis racket doing the Shadow's walk, in front of the mirror ...as I used to do as a kid!
And as a comment I quote, from memory, my favourite Shadows song.

"I say what a lovely tune, wonder who wrote it?"

A modern blast from the past

Alyn

Hi Noel
Glad it rocked you. Lol
I blame BB for the arrangement - that RockTexas RD and the Accordion going at 165bpm just seemed kind of right.
Words? Oh no - you don't want to hear me sing. Trust me!
In my band days they used to put me on at 11pm (drinking up time in those days) so the Landlord could get the punters out. Lol! grin
Cheers
Ian

Hi Steve
That s the general idea but I don't think they ever had an accordion in the group. Lol!
So glad you enjoyed it.
Cheers
Ian
Just checked your website. Superb music.
If ever you need a Hank Marvin tribute act - - - -

Hi Alyn
Playing "The Shadows" - The most fun you can have with your glasses on! Been playing their stuff for 50 yrs now. You'd think I could get the Walk right by now.
I guess it has that Shads spirit.
"I say, what a lovely tune. I wonder who wrote it?"comes from Brian Bennett who says it in a lugubrious voice at the end of that tune, which was flip side of "Guitar Tango"in 1962.
Total Anorak!!! Lol!
Cheers
Ia
