This is my arrangement of “Stardust” , which was composed in 1927 as an instrumental by Hoagy Carmichael. Lyrics were added in 1929 by Mitchell Parish.  The song has became a standard, and is one of the most recorded songs of the 20th century.

My instrumental arrangement is in the style of an early sixties Shadows guitar instrumental. The Shadows included “Stardust” on their 1967 album “Jigsaw”, but while inspired by their style, my arrangement is not a cover of theirs.

    Not bad Richard, got smoother towards the end, it’s one of those songs that the time needs to be pretty loose on, otherwise it sounds/feels mechanical. You got it the last time through, not a big difference, but a noticeable one to me, anyway. You might not agree, maybe it sounds more like a rock ballad the way you started out, but I’m just thinking out loud, er, typing while thinking..? Hahaha… Keep at it an, good to hear all your music, I do enjoy it. 😎

      I actually wanted it to be a rock ballad in this version.

        Then, I’d say you nailed it. 🤗
