.
speaking of strange...I have been trying to work out 'Sabre Dance' on my uke. Dave Edmonds played Sabre dance on his telecaster. it is a classical piece. very fast.
whenever I get close I blank out on a section and end up playing the melody for 'Bewitched'.

where's my bucket???

There's a couple of TV theme songs I've tried over the years:

Green Acres

The Munsters

Bonanza

Get Smart

James Bond

There are so many others, but these are a few I've tried to learn. :D

If you know something better than Rock and Roll, I'd like to hear it - Jerry Lee Lewis

I've picked out The Munsters, The Addams Family, Spiderman and of course, Batman. (Did most of my TV watching in the '60s.)

Tut, tut, wash your mouth out with soap and water, sir! Mr Edmunds played Sabre Dance on his 335, not a telecaster :D

I have tab for Sabre Dance, somewhere, if you're interested.

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.
Did you know that the word "gullible" is not in any dictionary?

true true. 335 on the Love Sculpture album I owned.
however, I saw him recently (five years ago maybe) he performed solo, incredibly good, and h played a tele.
so he can do it on both guitars.
