I'll follow Chet "Following the Sun"

Postby GaryL » Tue Dec 08, 2015 11:13 pm

My favorite Chet song is "I'll Follow the Sun." I originally posted this on the Chetboard a while ago with a link to a small web page I had made. My internet provider offered its subscribers a small amout of space for free for a web page. Then one day they stopped the free part and wanted to charge (bait and switch). So I didn't take the bait. I had taught myself html to do the web page and so on. Anyway, the recording I did of my favorite Chet tune was no longer available here and seems it no longer made the Chetboard cut. Left a lump in my throught. So I posted it on the Gretschpages and the link is below. I was promoting Chet and some of the Gretschpages folks liked the arrangement. I loved how Chet took off with the melody, did some beautiful slides and some rolls. It was hard to figure out and I never saw any tab for it. I'm sure it's out there. For you new folks that never heard Chet's great Beatles album. Give it a listen. My favorite.
I'm not good with linking, you may have to put the link in your browser.
Thanks for listening.

Gary, great job, very good, excellent sound.

"Chet Atkins Picks on the Beatles" is for me one of the most interesting albums of Chet (actually there are many) all fantastic arrangements.

I play often "A Hard Day's Night" I love this arrangement.

I hope to make a video soon.

Thank you folks.
Paolo, I hope to see you do "A Hard Day's Night" soon. That's a song I've wanted to learn.
Happy Holidays,
