Venturing #8: Pipeline

“Pipeline” was a 1963 surf-rock ht for The Chantays. It reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100.

My arrangement, while hopefully recognizable, strays pretty far from the original.


Venturing #7: Tequila

Is there an instrumental better known or more recognizable than “Tequila”?

It was a 1957 #1 hit for “The Champs”. My arrangement does not stray far from the very catchy original.
