Surfin’ the Turf #20: Last Date

This tune, as written and performed by Floyd Cramer, peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot #100 in 1960. It is likely you recognized it. Or perhaps you think you’ve never heard him. Well, you have. He is 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.

This tune was covered by many artists, including Duane Eddy and the Ventures.

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