Not a Second Time

Not a Second Time” was written by John Lennon (credited to Lennon–McCartney) and included on their second British album, With the Beatles. 

My instrumental version is not directly taken from the original, but is similar in feel.

Hold Me Tight

Hold Me Tight“was composed principally by Paul McCartney in 1961, and was part of the Beatles’ stage act until 1963. It was first recorded during the Please Please Me album session, but not selected for inclusion on that release.  It was re-recorded and released on their UK second album, With the Beatles. In the USA, it was released on their first Capitol Album, Meet the Beatles.

My instrumental arrangement tracks the original in feel.

Shadow of Hope

“Shadow of Hope” 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.

Don’t Bother Me

Don’t Bother Me” is the first song written by George Harrison to appear on a Beatles album, debuting on With the Beatles in the United Kingdom in 1963, and on Meet the Beatles! album in the United States in 1964.  The Beatles never performed it live or at any of their BBC sessions, but it did appear in the film A Hard Day’s Night during a scene where the Beatles dance at a nightclub.

My instrumental arrangement is based o the feel of the original.
