"Vincent"

  Gene1000

My arrangement of "Vincent" or "Starry Starry Night". The most famous version is probably Don Mclean's. This rendition is taken after Chet Atkins' wonderful piece. I recorded it some years back and I think I used a 6120.

"Sealed With A Kiss"

  Gene1000

My rendition of "Sealed With A kiss". Brian Hyland's version way back in 1962 was probably the most popular version.

Something

  GaryL

A great song on my Gretsch.

Once won't get it Done

  ÜberLoser

I wrote this when my daughter was 8 years old. I think it will be a fine "how do you do" to introduce me to her future suitors; and, of course, the line "I got your hole dug, an' I ain't even met you yet," says it all!

Estrellita

  GaryL

A one verse attempt at Chet's version of Estrellita written by Manuel Ponce. Chet used a D tuning on his 6th string which I did not do. As always Chet had great tone on his recording. I used my 6120 with the bass pickup and the mud switch engaged. Thanks for listening. Gary

In Your Eyes

  Lou574

I wrote and recorded this song this week. It's about a friend of mine who I couldn't save from his drug use back in 1967. Sad, but if it helps someone stay away from drug use, then it was worth recording...

An original orchestration of the Schubert version, done for a charity collaboration last year. (Trivia- The music was originally set to words written by Sir Walter Scot) No guitar content- but a seasonal favorite and one of my own personal favorite songs for the Holiday Season! Enjoy!

Oh What It Seemed to Be

  GaryL

I'm a big Jim Reeves fan and I enjoyed working on this arrangement listening to Jim's great voice. I tried to think how Chet might have done it in his early days. I used a Gretsch 6120 with lots of Bigsby and no amplifier. A simple BIAB backing track. The Jim Reeves wiki page link is as follows: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Reeves What a career Jim had! The amount of hits and records he set across the globe is staggering. So sad that he left us at such a young age. Thanks, GaryL

Winter Wonderland

  GaryL

A happy holiday song. Martin for backup and Yamaha FG730S for solo.

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

  GaryL

A classic Christmas song on my 6120.

I'll Follow The Sun

  GaryL

My attempt at Chet's arrangement of this great Beatles song. I wish I could have seen George's face when he first heard this arrangement. If you can listen to Chet's entire Beatles album - just great!

I Feel Fine

  Jim Krause

Messing around with some V7-I changes one evening, I discovered that that the riff in the Beatles' hit "I Feel Fine" could be played thumb style. Here is the result. I hope you enjoy it.

Ain't Misbehavin'

  Jim Krause

I always thought this Fats Waller song would make a great thumb style guitar solo. I hope you enjoy it.

Thinkin' of Chet

  Jim Krause

My humble attempt at playing one of Richard Hudson's compositions. I tried to capture the original essence, while adding a little of my own thoughts and feelings to the tune. Thanks go to both Richard for such a fine piece of music, and to our own Taffy for inviting me to submit this recording.

Asylum Street- Asteri Galanos

This is a recording of an overdue assignment at the Hartford Conservatory...that I forgot to turn in in the seventies. Finally finished it just recently. Too late for credit...the school closed. The school was on Asylum Avenue...it was a short walk from my cell to school.☺

Sweet Betsy From Pike (for Donald St. Clair Patterson)

  Journeyman

My Father liked to play the harmonica when he was in the right mood and I remember him being quite a good musician. This melody is one I especially liked and the alternating 4 bar/3 bar phrasing in this version came naturally from my imperfect memory of the song.

  Buddy Mercury

I have a really crappy car, the radio doesn't work so often when I make my commute back and forth to work, I sing to myself.

Red Eye Flight

  Jim Krause

This selection is a rough mix for a CD I'm working on. It started out as a Chuck Berry rocker, then took a turn into a Texas shuffle, and now sounds like a rockabilly song. I hope you like it. The Red Eye Flight was written by me. Your constructive comments are welcome.

Pop Star

  Mar Garcia

A re-recording of a song I wrote several years ago. A snarky take on the "Am. Idol"-era of music. I can't remember if the original recording of this was the song I had on one of the old Gretsch Pages compilation CDs or if it was another one. Enjoy. Or not... (c;
