Chords & Tabs / Re: chords for "NIGHT TRAIN" thanks to Bill Kestell
« on: January 17, 2018, 03:04:05 pm »
I was listening to this the other day and thought I knew how to play it....until I picked up my guitar and realized that I did not..  Anyone have tab for this?      If not I'll dig in and figure it out....it's fun anyways.

So there are 2 different recordings.    I'm referring to the version on the 1960 Walk Don't Run Album (A cover of the original 1951 version by Jimmy Forrest).   They also recorded a different version in 1964.    Here is the 1960 version I am referring to.

That's interesting.    I just never think of Don playing lead.     A nice surprise.   Like the rare occasions when you see them singing.
Thanks Jeff

Hey Jeff...this is cool. Wish I could be there to hear you  guys do this.  If you happen to record and post it please consider putting the link here.

Anyway...I finally completed tabbing this out. As Jeff notes, the recording is in F#/Gd.   I pushed it through Audacity to move it up to G.   So, here is my take on it. Any corrections or enhancements are welcome.

Not sure of some of the positions in the solo...but in the ballpark. 
Enjoy

This is related and interesting.  Recording by Don Markham....The Ventures recorded his song.  This is the text that goes with it:

This tune, "The Shuck", reached it's potential on The Ventures album, "The Ventures", Dolton LP #2004. Don Markham and Gary "Skip & Flip", "Monster Mash" Paxton composed the tune.  Don Markham toured with The Ventures early in their career(1960), and without a doubt, Don Markham is the resource from which The Ventures picked this tune.Don Markham went on to become a saxophonist for Merle Haggard's Strangers.  He stayed with Merle and The Strangers for 4 decades.  Don Markham passed away February 24, 2017, at age 85.

I don't suppose anyone has tab for this?      I could not find any.      If not, maybe I'll take a stab at it.

Here is the tune...I assume that Nokie is playing the lead.

OK...I'm finally getting back to this.    Who played the lead on the recording....was this Nokie?   It did not seem like Bob Bogle style to me.

I tried working this out in a few different positions (around the 4th fret, around the 12th fret, with some open strings)   but have settled on the tab below. This sounded the best to me and for me was the easiest to play.     I welcome any corrections or improvements.

At some point I'll work out the backing guitar parts....but for now this is what I have.

Hi Andy

Thanks for the input.   You are a much more adept player than I.   I think I'll have an easier time learning how to put a capo on than I will in learning to play the modulated part... :-)

Hello everyone.....

Was Mel Taylor a part of the wrecking crew?  I thought I read that somewhere but don't remember where.    I've seen that photo of him on drums and Hal Blaine playing tambourine.      If yes...what songs (other than Monster Mash) did he play on.

thanks

Was Home originally the flipside to Walk Don't Run?

Thanks to oldflogger and wstanger for the chords.    I'm finally sorting this out and learning the song.   I'll post tab when I'm done.

But first some audio entertainment: The original (were there variations of this recording?) and a more recent live version  (anyone know when this was recorded?)   Sounds great

Solo Playing tips:
Most of the solo is open strings on every other note..just keep your fingers going on and off the keyboard

The solo has an underlying melody (bold notes in the tab)..this is basically played along with adjoining strings.  Follow the melody and the rest will come.

This tab is in C…the record is ½ step off  but it is played in C as can be seen on the youtube video.
