Done as the Ventures or Shadows might have done it.

Angels We Have Heard on High

It appears that my holiday music project this year is going to be 1960’s style surf/guitar instrumental arrangements much in the style of the Ventures. ¬†I’ll be releasing them about one per week until Christmas.

The first is “Angels We Have Heard on High” which has a rockabilly setting that might remind you of Ricky Nelson’s backup band. I really hope you enjoy it — and the posts to follow — because I get a huge kick¬†creating them.

Wring That Neck

“Wring that Neck” is an instrumental, released as the second track on Deep Purple’s second album, “The Book of Taliesyn”. This is one of my all time favorite albums, and Deep Purple is one of the most influential rock bands ever. All were top notch players, in particular organist Jon Lord and guitarist Ritchie Blackmore.

This is a very literal cover of the original version. It’s a bit long at about 5 and 1/2 minutes, but hang to the end if you can (or skip to about the 4:00 minute mark if you’re impatient) — the coda is pretty cool.
