White Silver Sands

“White Silver Sands” was written in 1957 by Charles ‘Red’ Matthews, although partial authorship is also claimed by Gladys Reinhart. The song was a big hit for Don Rondo in the summer of 1957, and peaked at #7 on the Billboard Charts.

The Ventures included the song on their 1961 album, “Colorful Ventures”. Each track on the album features a color in the title.

My arrangement is basically a cover of the Ventures approach except for the half-step modulation at the end.
