People always recognize the intro to Goldfinger, and I thought I might try my own arrangement of the movie classic. I'm using my pedal and lap steels for this one. Hope you enjoy it.

Thank you - Chuck!! Excellent use of our instruments, it made me listen to your list again. Because of your picture I always think of you with your A22 - after several bobbin rewinds last week I finally got the right sound back from my #0043 A22 - mojo returns - cheers - Ray

I veryu much like the "foreplay" aspect of it - Will he/won't he; is it/isn't it? Kinda fits the whole Bond-ish sneaky aspect... Although I though Pierce Brosnan could've been the BEST BOND EVER, well O.K, SECOND-best... but for some bizarre, Hollywoodish idiocy they decided Bond had to blow up MORE cars than the Blues Brothers, kill MORE people than Bruce Willis & Rambo combined, they lost sight of the charm, and this Daniel Craig gritty anti-hero nonsense... sigh. To be a lovable rogue, you do need to be lovable? I did think, if you brought out the tease more early, then slam it with a full-on Theme treatment, well... I'd listen to it a lot! Should I promise you'd get rich and famous? Rolling Eyes

Thanks, Chuck, that one brought back memories. Circa 1966, I was the proud owner of this: http://www.vectis.co.uk/AuctionImages/367/1511_l.jpg

Chuck,

My radio show, "Instrumentally Yours" resumes Sunday 24 Sept at 9 pm. I would like to feature your version of "Goldfinger" in a future show.

Could you please send the track to my e-mail? mp3 at least 192 kbps would be nice, if not .aiff or .wav

Thanks, Guys. I guess the music from the early James Bond movies is in my DNA. Kay, glad that you are still doing your radio show. Thanks for promoting the steel guitar.

Wow, Wow and Wow, nice one Chuck. Second time I heard it today, saw a Shirley Bassey thing on the the plane flying back from England today.
