Shadow Rising

“Shadow Rising” 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 style of the Shadows.

It Won’t Be Long

It Won’t Be Long” is the opening track on With the Beatles, the Beatles’ second UK album. Although credited to Lennon–McCartney, it was primarily a John Lennon composition, with Paul McCartney assisting with the lyrics and arrangement. In the US, “It Won’t Be Long” first appeared on Meet the Beatles!, released in January, 1964.

My instrumental arrangement follows the original, but is slower. This actually makes it it easier to hear the numerous rather unconventional — and very imaginative — aspects of the song.
