Last Date

“Last Date”, as written and performed by Floyd Cramer, peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot #100 in 1960. It is likely you recognize it. Perhaps you think you’ve never heard him. Well, you have. Floyd Cramer was the pianist on Elvis’ “Heartbreak Hotel” and played on countless Nashville sessions. He is widely recognized as having “written the book” on country piano. There would be no Chuck Leavell without Floyd Cramer.

“Last Date” was covered by many artists, including Duane Eddy and the Ventures.

My arrangement attempts to make the tune into a guitar number.
