Stronger Together

  Lou574

I wrote and recorded this for a government psa, for National Prevention Week. Had some great players on it with me. Liberty Devitto, Richie Cannata, ( Billy Joel ) and Julio Fernandez ( Spyro Gyra )

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...

  GaryL

Jam in "A" on my Gretsch. It's silly and I'm working on lyrics to go with it. You can find someone else beating this guitar up on U Tube if you search the s/n. I had to take it from him.

Yesterday (Beatles)

  Chrisfar70

Noodling around with this famous melody... and TV jones tones.....

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

  Chrisfar70

When I first installed my TV jones classics soon after purchasing my 5120 I was inspired....

Streets of Laredo - Revisited

  GaryL

Laredo Complete- oh... Of course a Gretsch guitar (6120). You've got to like a bigsby.

Santa Lucia

  Gene1000

My arrangement of this wonderful Italian classic. My guide was Chet's great version. The guitar used was a vintage 1980 Gretsch White Falcon stereo, model 7595.

Remember Me

  Jim Krause

This is one of my favorite Willie Nelson compositions. I hope I did it justice. No virtual instruments were used in this recording

Ave Maria

  GaryL

My 6120 version of Ave Maria. Happy Holidays to the great folks on the Gretsch Pages.

Crazy

  Jim Krause

Rhythm guitar is the Gretsch content. Lead guitar is a Telecaster knock-off.

Ave Maria

  Kevin Frye

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

  Asteri

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.☺

Beautiful song on my Gretsch 6120.

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.

The Check Engine Light

  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.

Another older song of mine I recently re-recorded. Featuring my Green 6118T-LTV.

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;

I'm aprt of a songwriting challenge/support group. This is my submission for this month. Only demo level and I'm no lead (or rockabilly) player so please be kind. just wanted to use my new 5129 and I've been listening to more rockabilly type stuff so it went down that route (I hope)

Time of War

  mrguitarboy

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: 2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, 3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, 4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, 5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, 6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, 7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, 8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
