Chains

Chains” was composed by the husband-and-wife songwriting team Gerry Goffin and Carole King and originally recorded (but not released) by The Everly Brothers. In 1962 it was a hit for Little Eva’s backing singers, The Cookies (#17 U.S. Pop, #7 R&B), and later covered by The Beatles.

It was a popular cover song for Liverpool bands after its release in November 1962, and was included briefly in the Beatles’ live sets. They recorded it for inclusion on their British debut, Please Please Me.

My instrumental arrangement preserves the shuffle rhythm of the Beatles version.

I’ll Cry Instead

I’ll Cry Instead” is a John Lennon composition credited to Lennon–McCartney, and recorded by the Beatles for the soundtrack to their film A Hard Day’s Night.

Joe Cocker’s first single was a cover of this song in 1964. Johnny Rivers included a cover on a 1965 album. Chet Atkins recorded an instrumental version in 1966.

My instrumental arrangement is based on the distinctive country-swing feel of the original Beatles version.

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.
