A Cover of a classic Shadows classic tune from 1962. Yep, 60 years old. Still a great tune.
Re-imagined using Band In A Box to create a 'live band' performance feel to the backing.
Hands these days can't play the palm muted parts very well so WYHIWYG.

SIX.

MASSIVE !! UN-BLINKIN'-BELIEVEABLE !!

What a wonderful show of what biab can do. You sir are a true guitar talent.

that's one of my fav all time instrumentals. yep that palm muting is a tad fiddly …
BUT you did STELLAR !!

ive played along to that so many times for fun, but never been able to nail the tone like you did.
so if you want to share your sig chain …preferably a cheap solution for us poorer …lol…i'm all ears.
i would be over the moon if pg offered a plug in for bb n' rb for gtr players that produced that classic tone.

ive always wondered where the shads recorded their hits ie the studio. do you know ?
abbey rd ?

your soo good you should try some of the oldie jet h n' tony m songs..n' other instrumentals.
eg diamonds.

its grrreat to see these "wonderfull' oldies introduced to new generations of musos.


super duper six…seriously.

happiness.

om

Hi om
Thanks for the praise. Blush! Must have played it hundreds of times in the past but was astonished how difficult those damped sections were nowadays with these ancient hands.
I can't afford expensive gear these days. Those days are long gone. BB is my only Sin. Lol.
My 'chain' such as it is is Strat (bespoke HBM 40th Anni copy) - Boss CS-1 pedal (set low for evenness) - Alesis Q2 echo unit (I've had since 2004) - Joyo ACTone Vox AC30 emulator pedal (inexpensive but excellent Vox emulator) - Cakewalk DAW. That's it. My 'real' Vox sits unused with a cover it these days.
Would love to do Diamonds etc but there are no RDs that get anywhere close to TMs drumming.
The Shads recorded mostly at Abbey Road, certainly in their 'Golden Years'. At times they were recording at same time as The Beatles. Hazy days!

Wow, excellent job. I'm a huge fan of Hank Marvin and the Shadows too. Here is my humble version of the song, also backed by Biab.

Also Telstar

Hi Ian, Here is the Biab file I created for Telstar.

I can't remember if I added other tracks to the mix.

I did a slide on lap steel for the key change.

Take care, Andrew

SIX.

what i always found interesting about shads was on some songs you can hear intonation is off a bit.
eg is it the savage ? that just starts with drums n' bass ive forgotten.
if ive got it right i always loved that one also.

ok found it …the savage. difficult rhythm cos fast….lol.
gotta keep hand loose…lol.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2W3HJbf7Go

i loved playing with it. cute ending . you ever considered doing it six ?

re joyo …is this the pedal ?? Joyo ACTone Vox AC30 nice price.

Andrew.

lovely job. apparently they got the telstar sound by reversing audio of a toilet flushing…!
if i remember it was joe meeks studio in north london ?

(i'm a londoner.)


happiness.

Hi Ian,

Great job on this, you pretty much nailed his tone I think.

Guitar should be a tad louder for my tastes, but that's probably just me wink

Hi Andrew
thanks for the SGU for Telstar.
Very nicely done. Would you mind if I used it as the base for doing it myself?
I found the Dublin Rock style had a very close style to what I would have used.

Hi om
Yes, I've recorded The Sausage but not with a BiaB BT. Great tune isnt it?
And Yes - the Joyo is exactly that one. When I bought mine it was £19.50. its £47 nowadays. SHeesh!
Before they came along I used a tiny Korg Ampworks as a recording emulator. Miniscule but it did the job, more or less. Still have it.

Hi Jim
It was a bit of a struggle working round this bad hip of mine but it didnt turn out too bad - except for the palm muting. blush
Glad you liked it.

Hi Dave
thanks for the kind comment. Much appreciated.
My Strat has Kinman pups in and I use a Joyo Vox emulator and that really helps with the tone.
I agree that maybe the Lead should have been a bit more forward.
Been struggling since Aug '22 with a wrecked hip which has stopped me being able to sit or stand for very long. So I do my BB BT and recording in small bites now before the ache gets too bad.

Ian,

Go ahead, great tune. I used a recording of the Space Shuttle for the take-off. Not around when the original took off, but got the job done.

All my best, Andrew

If you want any other SGU's let me know.

Ian, not much more to say except: "You Nailed It !!"

This is an absolutely brilliant production. Every part shines.

Your performance is outstanding.
