As I read your post I heard it in my head.
One of the first pieces I ever slow-danced to...13 years old and hormones raging!
I listened to a few other versions; Jeff Beck, Joe Satriani, et al.
Less Paul is by far the BEST. Thank you! :)
I still have several 78 rpm records by Les Paul and Mary Ford.
Yep. Les Paul has always been in my ‘rotation.’ :)
Don’t forget Mary’s sultry voice. None better (for sultry, that is.)
LOL! By the, I wouldn’t dare play them, even it I owned a record player that would still play 78 RPM records ... way to valuable.
Thanks for that. I give you this in return. It’s not just an insurance company jingle
Here’s a gem! Boom-Boom-Boom!
Probably one of the first pieces every aspiring jazz guitarist takes a stab at.
I tried to follow this tutorial - but no way, especially on an acoustic. Love his sound though.
Entertaining guy and a good teacher ..
Guitar Basics for Ole Geezers! Uncle Raggy (finger style picking)
My grandad has some vinyl Mickey and Silvia that I love! The guitars are almost like Les Paul and Mary Ford. (he has a rack of almost three yards of 33’s)
Still like the sound of the original by those 2 Brooklyn kids. I first heard it at the end of the summer of 59’ I still enjoy it when its played on the radio. One big sweet memory is attached to it. Can’t get either the song or the memory out of my mind, it always brings me back to that time. I guess that’s the same with many songs occurring during our “happy days”.
Hey, he’s fun to watch/listen to.
I know nothing about the right hand, otherwise can form the chords with the left more or less.
What kind of settings on the amp and pickups do you use for that sound?
So I'm listening to a 1950's song on Youtube. And the background guitar work was magnificent, unique. So I says to myself, "I'll bet that's Les Paul." And then I checked. I was right.
And yes there were words to it!!
Too bad can’t play.

I’m pretty well lost past the 7th fret!
>>What kind of settings on the amp and pickups do you use for that sound?
You’re not asking me, are you? Post the question to Uncle Raggy.
Wow, thanks for posting Atkins “Jam Man”...never heard it before. Just used MediaHuman to capture it to iTunes.
Wow. Thanks for introducing me to THAT.
He told me set to neck pickup, clean channel, a little chorus, delay, reverb.
I agree! LOL
Fantastic song by Santo and Johnny. Listening to it now from my mp3 collection.
Same here. I was 16, and he was special, but it didn’t work out. And now 56 years later, knowing what I know about how he turned out, I’m glad it didn’t.
A true genius.
I remember hearing “Sleepwalk” on American Bandstand in 1964 as the British Invasion commenced. It sounded ancient at the time to a 15 year old, but now it’s a classic.
Could have sworn that Dick Clark introduced it as a 1957 oldie. The teenagers on the AB set made good use of its slowdance rhythm.
May I share one of my favorites with you...
and you:) Thank you:)
