Here is my cover of this song. I did this cover over a year ago,, but I did it with distortion the first time around. This time,, I wanted to capture the feel of the original and wanted to redo it with some clean tone and reverb. I used my New Roland Micro cube amp hooked direct and my Fender Strat for this. Hope I did a descent job on trying to keep the tone close to the classic 60's "surf" sound. This is a fun Instrumentl to play. my next task is to learn "Sleepwalk" one of these days.

i'd agree use the bridge pickup next time .. to get that hank marvin 50's surf tone out of your axe .

Great stuff.
Just wish you'd stick to the original riff/lick/whatever during the break part :grin:
Also sounds like there's a wrong note in the intro/outro.
No big deal tho, overall a very good performance, and a nice tone.

The important thing is..you got the feel and tone of the song. I heard a different note or 2 but still liked it alot, as eddie VH says, "if it sounds good it's good"this sounds whoooooooooooo!!!good:D

Scott thought that was superb, my mum told me if she could hear me play this she'ld then admit I could play the guitar, I took her Shadows album upstairs (the old 33" vinyl) and learnt every bastard song lol.
Anyway thought your approach of playing it was very refreshing and enjoyable and shows your versatility on guitar
Great job man:grin:

heh used to play this also when i was at school along with other shadows tracks, cool stuff Scott :)
the alternative notes didnt really bother me, I like that you interpreted it your own way ;)
