Hank Marvin!

Hank Marvin playing ‘Apache’

A marvellous BBC documentary about ‘The Shadows at Sixty‘…. -with some timely commentary from Brian May (Queen) about Hank’s Apache melody: – “He doesn’t just play notes. Every note has a beauty of its own. Every note starts in the right way, continues in the right way (with a certain amount of vibrato from his whammy bar or whatever) and ends in the right way.”

That’s what we’re aiming to do. We’re not just playing notes in the right order: every little element has an impact on the overall expression.
