Tab For James Bond " Goldfinger?"

Just got the Blue Stingray's " Surf and Burn " and want to learn to play " Goldfinger." All the tabs I have seen thus far have chords, but not the individual notes for the intro / main riff. Can anyone help?

It's not going to be an easy one to tab out that, being an orchestrated piece, the tabs would be a fake version for guitar I suppose.

I'd be more than happy to see some of them myself, would be a nifty tune to add to the list.

I haven't heard it for a bit, but I have the CD here...Bond themes are always a hit with the surf guitar crowd...

Never seen a TAB of the Blue Stingrays, probably not likely to...

For those not in the know, the Blue Stingrays are a mythical surf band with authentic CD packaging and listing other albums, but in fact, they made this one and consisted of Tom Petty's band "the heartbreakers" and particlularly Mike Campbell as a side project and for their love of the genre...you really hear the surf sound in his playing. You can tell by the 'aged sleeve fold' that the record was a 'spoof'..."the engineers even had to wear blindfolds to protect the identity of the band"...but it's a decent enough record.

Could be a good one to practice a bit of transcribing on, or making up your own versions...

You may well find a few bond TABs from other surf bands that might give you a clue...I'll have a re-listen later perhaps, but couldn't promise I'll have a lot of time to transcribe it....have a bit of a go yourself first, see what you come up with!

Nooo.....I know the original well...I have a thing for 007 themes....

We are talking about the SURF versions of these themes...in particular this one...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Bond_music

Bond music is excellent for thinking about composing aspects, particularly the use of motifs and the reoccurring themes that "make' things ...

The Modern sensational surf band, "slacktone" do a fantastic version as I recall, a three piece surf band and may make an interesting one to here and learn...very cool band, fantastic players...

I saw this recently, thought it might help with a completely different approach. Jake Reichbart is a great Jazz finger-stylist and arranger and comes up with some great ideas on arranging well known songs in this tradition...possibly not the best example of his stuff though...

Still, it's good and you can get an idea of the chords and perhaps the melody is a bit cleaner too...most of his stuff is also available as a DVD lesson for those interested, thought I'd give him a plug as he's been quite instructive and generous in the amount of material he's offered up on YT alone!

hope that vid link worked...if not...perhaps...

If you can find it, a band from out here called "The Dragsters" did it on a record called "Stoked" from 1989. Great album, great band, great version of Gold Finger. I can't seem to find a clip of them anywhere. What comes up on youtube isn't the band I'm thinking of. This is all I can find ...

My favorite version of Goldfinger is by Billy Strange. Starts at 2:20 on this video clip.
