Hi All

I heard this beautiful song by the shadows only recently at the Watford Shadows club. Originally played on an Acoustic i preferred the sound on an electric so thought id do it that way. This is "Poem" from the album Established 1958. Recorded on my Squier Simon Neil Strat with a Boss Katana 50 and Alesis Quad GT. Hope you enjoy

Thanks

Regards

Steve

  1. Hi Steve,

    I really admire your work – I came across you by chance on YouTube & have enjoyed checking out your videos and learning your story.
    I’m a similar age to you I think (30) & like you have appreciated the Music of The Shadows from a young age. I got a part time job at 13 to buy my first guitar – a Fender Squier strat, then was lucky enough to have lessons with a guy from a Shadows tribute band.
    Life got in the way though – work, marriage, kids etc so the guitar got packed away in the loft. Recently I’ve picked it up again though & have been trying to play The Shadows songs again.
    A problem I’m having though is trying to find decent guitar tabs – I’ve tried Guitar Tab Universe but a lot of the tabs are hit & miss. Is there a site you can recommend / that you use?
    Any advice would be greatly received.
    I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future & commend you for raising the profile of the wonderful Shadows music. It took guts to go on Britains Got Talent. Keep up the good work.

    Cheers & all the best

  4. Hi steve im looking to purchase, california blue by roy orbison tabs. I was wondering is it possible you send me the tabs to my email and we can pay through PayPal. Thanks

  5. Dear Steve, I have being trying to emulate Hank’s’ sound (which you seem to get right on the button with every track I have heard from you)

    I don’t have a Vox amp. I am using a Fender twin. It has a middle control which I have turned up to around 8. This seems to be the nearest I can get. I have got an Alesis with Charlie Hall’s echoes from the past on it. The echo sounds very near, but my Strat doesn’t seem to capture Hank’s sound.

    Any suggestions on Strat or Amp settings?

  7. Hi Chris

    Nice to hear from you. Dave doesnt use tabs im afraid but i may be able to have a listen to it and work it out for you in the next couple of days. The backing track sounds the same as the one from http://www.ameritz.co.uk

  13. Hi Steve. I saw some posts from (I think) 2015 re EQ’s on the CH&F’s web site. I was wondering if you would mind sharing any settings that you found could get you closer to “That” sound.
    Regards Dave
