This one was a request for Nikki Smith – Thanks Nikki – good suggestion I hope you like it. !

“Go West” is a song by the American disco group Village People. It was a hit in the disco scene during the late 1970s. The song found further success when it was covered in 1993 by British synthpop duo Pet Shop Boys. The song was written by Jacques Morali, Henri Belolo and the group’s lead singer Victor Willis. The melody is based on the State Anthem of the Soviet Union composed by Alexander Alexandrov, which was itself a reworking of Pachelbel’s Canon.

Played on my Alan Brason custom Stratocaster fitted with Kinman FV-HMS pickups on mid position, through an Alesis Quadraverb Q2 with EFTP Patch 0-36.

I used a great Karaoke version custom BT here :-

I made Tabs out of my arrangement which are FREE to download here :-

Sound recorded in Cubase SX 6 and edited with the Video takes in Sony Vegas PRO 11.

Please enjoy “Go West”
