When I Get Home

When I Get Home” is a John Lennon composition (credited to Lennon–McCartney) recorded by the Beatles for their LP A Hard Day’s NightIts first US release was on the Something New LP.

My instrumental arrangement is not a straight cover, but does follow the original in its main features.

Shadow Stalker

“Shadow Stalker” is an original composition in which I try to combine the feel of 60’s instrumental guitar rock with a somewhat more sophisticated musical and harmonic language than was typical for that genre. This one is similar to the style of the Shadows.

I Need You

I Need You” was written by George Harrison and appears in both the film and on the album Help!.  The Beatles’ version features Harrison’s first recorded use of a volume pedal, creating the distinctive swells which I reproduce in my instrumental arrangement.

You Like Me Too Much

You Like Me Too Much” was written by George Harrison. It was released in 1965 on the Help! album in the United Kingdom and on Beatles VI in the United States.

My instrumental arrangement is not a straight cover, though it does certainly recall the feel of the original. My version becomes increasingly surf-y as it proceeds. The instrumental break of the original is used as the coda in my version.

One Time Through

“One Time Through” is an original composition in which I try to combine the feel of 60’s instrumental guitar rock with a somewhat more sophisticated musical and harmonic language than was typical for that genre. This one is like the ballad style of the Shadows.
