Day Tripper

Here is another Beatles tune. I think it’s a bit unusual given where their music was heading at the time. It’s basically just a guitar riff-driven rocker.

Guitar

I'll Follow the Sun

I am something of a sucker for the sappy, pretty Paul McCartney songs like this one (or like “I Will” form the White Album). It seemed a good choice for an arrangement.

Guitar

I Saw Her Standing There

I had quite a bit of fun arranging and recording this. It’s cool creating surf-rock tracks from songs not normally associated with the genre. This one actually translated quite readily.

Guitar

And I Love Her

From the 1964 film, “A Hard Days” Night, this song peaked at #12 on the USA charts.

Guitar

Bluebird

This is a track from the Ventures 1962 album, “Twist Party Vol. 2”. It was not released as a single, nor can I find any indication that it was ever a “B” side. 15 more words

Guitar

Lonely Heart

This song, written by members Bob Bogle and and Don Wilson, was on the Ventures 1961 album, “Another Smash”. It was also released as a single, but did not chart. 26 more words
