CHORDS AND TABS PAGE - LOTS OF HITS ON SOME SONGS
« on: February 25, 2016, 08:44:58 pm »
Hey Walt I was just looking at the chords & tabs page and we have some songs with over 1000 hits and Telstar with over 4,000 hits. Must be lots of guitar heads out in their garages working out these tunes.

Can you give us a list of the top 10 or 20 hits?

Rich Miller

PS - A big thanks to the late Bill Kestell for charting these Venture tunes and making them available to us all!!!!!!!!!!!!  ;-)

Walt if you look at the chords and tabs pages "10" of them you can see how many "VIEWS", or "HITS" per tab. Which gives you a pretty good indication of how many geetar players are hopefully trying yo master the Ventures tunes.

Can you scroll through the "VIEWS" and perhaps make a list of the top 10 or 20 viewed songs to see what the Ventures fans clamor for?

Thanks,
Rich Miller

I second Walt's reply Rich- nice job.   

Being retired like you, I often get 'nudged'
the same way by the main moderator.   He
really keeps me on my toes.   

In fact, I just posted (day in advance) this
year's 'song suggestion' list for all the 'fest
jammers.'   Check it out.   Plenty of 'rather
interesting' non-Ventures material.

 Hey Tom the "Great Prognosticator" drafted me. I was actually expecting it to happen.
 
Some very interesting songs. Now what would be really interesting if you had some way to track what country, state, city in the world the "views" were made from. Might give a truly international scope to the web page.

Outside of playing a 'mean' lead guitar,
that's what he does 'best.'   

'Exact' locale' on the various views would
truly tell a story but 'sadly' not possible,
at least in this instance.   Again 'kudos' on
what you did accomplish!

This makes it (3) posts in a row Rich with a WINK!

How 'bout joining us at the 'fan fest' come October
& if you say NO, would you at least 'support' us w/
a 'commemorative' tee shirt purchase or perhaps
last year's DVD SET?   

A little birdie, let's add the phrase 'pain in the ass'
to that- tells me that you're 'now' officially settled
in down south & have absolutely no excuses for not
comin.'   So your next step is to get a list of excuses
off to 'that person' right away!   LOL!

we already have two trips planned for this year. In June we head to South Carolina for a new grandchild arrival and in October we fly to Idaho for a birthday.

As Sean Connery said about acting in another James Bond movie. "Never say never again."

We shall see Tom.

Thanx for the Miller's 'trip update.'   I'll expect you
to take me up on the T-shirt which'll cost you a
mere $20.
