    UPDATED TAB ‘Cosy” – From The Shadows 1962 album ‘Out Of The Shadows’ – I love playing this song but I was never satisfied with the playing positions on the neck that I was using. I recently decided to revise the whole tab using different neck positions. I think what I have know is an improvement and gives a sound which is much closer to Hank’s original 1962 rendition. I hope you agree.

    NEW TAB ‘Summer Holiday” – One of Cliff Richards hit songs from the 1963 movie Summer Holiday revived by Hank Marvin as part of his 1995 Album ‘Hank Plays Cliff’. Originally composed by Brian Bennett and Bruce Welch this version arranged and played beautifully by Hank. It has taken quite a while for me to complete this one but I really like it and I am practising it at every opportunity. Just another of Hanks tunes I love playing

    NEW TAB ‘French Dressing” – An old Shadows classic this one from their 1964 album ‘The Shadows’ – Written and composed by Brian Bennett drummer el supremo of the Shadows at that time (and still is).
    Just one of those tunes I love playing – not sure why – it’s got something about it that feels like the early 1960’s – a great vintage in my opinion.

    UPDATED TAB ‘The Young Ones” – From the Hank Marvin 1995 album ‘Hank Plays Cliff’ – I have made a couple of position changes to this one. I think the changes work better than the original fingering.

    UPDATED TAB ‘Albatross” – The Shadows 1980 – A beautiful number from Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac in 1968 and subsequently by the Shadows in 1980. I have agonised over the intro section for years. Have seen it played at least 5 different ways BUT after much listening and consideration I have finally written it as A / Emaj7 / A / Emaj7 chord progression. From what I have also read this is how Peter Green composed it and I believe Hank played it this way.

    UPDATED TAB ‘The Miracle” – The Shadows 1964. A few small changes to the fingering positions on the fretboard. I think is closer to the sound Hank gets on this one.

    UPDATED TAB ‘A Whole New world’
    I have made a few detailed changes to this lovely tune from Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice that I transcribed back in 2018. Played beautifully as usual by Hank & The Shadows. Not an easy one to learn or play well with many unique details to memorise, but well worth the effort.
