    20201116_160128.jpg Time to wipe the dust of my reverb and fire up the Twin Reverb...hmmm...Jaguar Or jazzmaster....think Jazzmaster
    Its what i do...first time my band hit them with it...jaws dropped...its still the talk of the town
    my recordings i put up are a very very tame version of a tiny bit of our surf rep

    Love the Ventures and all surf! ... Dick Dale, Surfaris, Pollo del Mar, Slacktone, Mermen, Los Straitjackets ... this one was my first surf album which I got (swiped from my older brother) the same year as Meet the Beatles.

    always loved it too mate...its like a sound that wont go away...once i got the gist of wipeout as a 12 yr old...i was hooked on reverb n surf...its not a well known thing in UK for most part...they mostly think of tarantino movies or spaghetti westerns when you first mention it..or maybe The Beach Boys
    I was lucky guitarwise...my first elec was a nice old red Fender Jag.along with an AC15 and a Vox reverb unit..10th B/Day prezz...soon got a fender amp.and reverb tank..and that was me happy
    where i live is a great surfing beach too...directly North Facing in the North Sea...next stop the Arctic Circle...

    This is the Jazzmaster I used on the track...it's a Warmoth alder body and maple/rosewood neck with Fender Vintage Jazzmaster pickups, a volume and a tone, and a three-way switch. The vibrato is a Wilkinson VS100.

    I had a Fender Jazzmaster in the early 80s and never had need for all the switches on it.

    Another surf music group of the 60's is The Sandals. Google The Endless Summer by Bruce Brown. I have this album and it Rocks.

    I can also assume that only cooler than this version of Starsky & Hutch theme is Winter's version of Frankenstein

    The Ventures and surf music in general is why I decided to try to learn to play guitar again after quitting 20 years ago. Highly underrated genre.

    I love this band. A lot of that surf music had roots in eastern European folk music...

    I love the Ventures... especially the period when Nokie Edwards became the lead guitar player and they played Mosrites. He had such a great slightly distorted tone that he got from a fuzz pedal made for him by Red Rhodes.

    Here's my favorite example... Nokie Edwards just killing it (along with the drummer), and making it sound so effortless:
