Twangin’ Twice

“Twangin’ Twice” is an original instrumental in the late-50’s early 60’s style of guitar twangmaster Duane Eddy — who together with producer Lee Hazlewood — put together a string of 27 Hot-100 hits between 1958 and 1964.

It features “dueling guitars” in a call & response setting.

It’s All in the Game

It’s All in the Game” was a 1958 1958 number one hit for Tommy Edwards, staying at the top of the charts for 6 weeks. Carl Sigman wrote the lyrics in 1951 to a wordless 1911 composition titled “Melody in A Major,” written by Charles G. Dawes, who went on to be Vice President of the United States under Calvin Coolidge.

Recognized as a “standard” today, it has been recorded my many artists — charting for many of them — including Dinah Shore, Sammy Kaye, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Cliff Richard, Bing Crosby, Merle Haggard and the Four Tops.

My instrumental arrangement is in late 50’s early 60’s style.
