Imagine you're back in the early 60's - when Life was simple. 'Beat groups' sprang up everywhere and some, like the Shadows and The Ventures became guitar instrumentsl mega stars. And are still revered today.
So this tune goes right back to those roots from 60 years ago - just Bass, Rhythm guitar, Drums and Lead guitar, with a little extra 'strings' in the chorus as was typical of the time.
Tracks -
RealTracks in song: 1174:Bass, Electric, PopCalypso Ev 100
RealTracks in song: 1175:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm PopCalypso Ev 100
RealTracks in song: 1841:Synth Pad, PopModernGrooveHigh Ev16 075
RealDrums [in Song:PopRock16ths^03-a:Sidestick, HiHat, b:Snare, HiHat
Relax and enjoy.

Hi Ian,

that era is in my DNA ! And I've been a Strat lover ever since. Man, how differently could it sound: That Shadows tone, Jimi, Rory Gallagher, those Surfer bands and and and.

But the sound you come up with here is undoubtedly the original one, and you do it really proud.

Very, very nice !

Take care,

Stefan

Hi Stefan, David, moto, Nigel, dcuny, and CBO (wobbyG) and thank you for your kind comments.
They are much appreciated.
Surprised to find how 60's the BB RT Calypso tracks are. Very useful.
Hoping that more Retro RTs are in Santa's 2022 RT sack.
Best regards
Ian

Hi Scott
Thank you for your feedback. HBM is a big guitar hero of mine - along with nany others.
If it sounded anything like his style, I'm thrilled.

Outstanding, Ian. You captured the times and mood so well. Shadows are often described with sinister or hidden things --something to avoid, but your Shadows Of Evening are so very inviting.

Thank you, Floyd. Much appreciated.
I'd like more 60s styled RTs in 2022 and then we could get really retro. Lol

You have captured the Shadows vibe very well. Well constructed and nicely played. If HBM ran out of ideas, I'm sure he would enjoy playing your tune. Well done.
