Everybody’s Pickin’ on Leiber & Stoller  

15 Classics from Legendary Songwriting Team Arranged for Fingerstyle Guitar

Mark Hanson, Doug Smith, Laurence Juber, Kenny Sultan, Wayne Johnson, Nick Charles

An outstanding lineup of guitarists is represented here, each having arranged a classic tune (or two!) from the legendary songwriting team of Leiber and Stoller.

Standout arrangements include Arlen Roth's "Charlie Brown", Doug Smith's "Fools Fall In Love", Nick Charles' "Stand By Me", Mike Dowling's "D.W. Washburn", and Laurence Juber's "Poison Ivy." Mark's open-G7-tuning version of "Kansas City" is included, as is the Hanson/Smith duet of "Yakety Yak", which features a fugue in the middle! Great fun!
