A Taste Of Honey cover( CHET ATKINS)-VIDEO

Postby Spadaro Paolo » Sun May 31, 2015 8:16 am

Hello to all .......
I return after a while of silence due to ups and downs in my private life (nothing irreparable) .......

Today I want to share with you the cover of "A Taste Of Honey" arranged by Mr.Chet and present in his 1966 album
"It's a Guitar World."

As usual Chet imprints in history a captivating arrangement too, the first section in fingerstyle, and then suddenly with beautiful melodies and then close in fingerstyle.

Thanks to the meticulous work of the great Jack Baker, I was able to study and follow step by step the song.

It is executed, not without errors, with the help of my fantastic GRETSCH 6122-1959 and with the help of Band in a Box.

I hope you like it.........
Ciao, PAOLO SPADARO

That was nice, Paolo. I too played this arrangement for a talent show in college about 1 year after Chet recorded it. I think that what I'm most impressed with is the fact that you're interested in learning a song like this at such a young age! Most people your age wouldn't be interested.

Dager:
Chet Atkins made the best arrangements for guitar, I am convinced ..... The right notes, the right time, the right effects, the right rhythm, the right sound.
Are literally hit from all his work of a lifetime, classical guitar, electric, acoustic ....,
No boundaries .......
I do not think it depends on the age but the feelings that trigger these arrangements affect ..... I really do not know why but it is so, and once heard the arrangement of Chet, all the others are secondary .....

My dad bought that album when I was about 8 years old and I listened to side 1 about a million times.

YOU NAILED IT!!

Thank you for sharing your you-tube, I really enjoyed it! Best wishes with your playing!
