Hi, Gang !
I'm glad to say my fingers have healed and was finally able to fulfill a request I received nearly a year ago...
Phil McGarrick (YT user random275) posted another channel last year to post highlights of Shadowmania 2011. While viewing the footage I came across a wonderful performance of the tune I'm posting here by a Shadows cover band called The Foottappers, who oddly enough, played this tune on Burns Guitars !
I off-handedly commented to Phil that I may just want to try it on my Burns Shadows Apache Special, and Phil was quite enthusiastic about the prospect, and convinced me to actually do it !
After much side tracking and many posts later...I've done it !
So many things go on during this tune, that it's almost like several guitarists playing it...and THAT's the approach I took, thinking of 1977 and "The Hank Marvin Guitar Syndicate", which was 8 or 9 really talented players all playing different melodies and harmonies on a piece of music.
On top of the Shadows Workout BT (thanks, Ian !), I overdubbed 7 tracks with the Burns and panned them in different stereo spots to really make it interesting.
The part that is really "Me", is the 1 track of distorted guitar which was not on the Shadows version. I covered that on my Carvin CT-624 guitar, to really give it more of a "rock" flavor.
This was indeed a "production, and I hope it's one you'll all enjoy...So...without further ado, here's my version of the Shadows' 1980 rocker..."Fender Bender"...
Phil...This one's for you, mate !
