Twing, Twang, Twung

“Twing, Twang, Twung” is an original instrumental that combines elements of the styles of Duane Eddy, the Ventures, and the Shadows. All three are artists I’ve spent considerable time studying.

The most prominent lead instrument is the baritone guitar.

Movin’ ‘n’ Groovin’

Movin’ ‘n’ Groovin’ was Duane Eddy’s first single, released in 1958. It only reached #72 on the Billboard Hot 100, but set the stage for his future success: his next release, Rebel Rouser, went to #6 that same year.

The Ventures covered the tune in 1962.

In my arrangement I tried to include elements of Duane Eddy’s style as well as the Ventures and surf guitar music in general.

Blue Bari

“Blue Bari” is an original composition. I set out to write a Duane Eddy type tune featuring bluesy licks my baritone guitar. The recording does feature the baritone, but the feel of the track turned out to be more Bill Doggett-style honky-tonk.
