    Cool track.

    I just this morning started the process of a surf video -- this for a review of a new tremolo pedal I was given by a company I'd not heard of before: KMISE.

    'Twas a nice antidote to the snow-filled skies! :)

    That’s an awesome backing track! I will play with that this weekend. Thanks!

    Herr is my feeble attempt at trying to sound “surfy”!

    Okay, here's the quickie vid I made this morning. "Surf Rider" - a song I really enjoy playing. Done here to demonstrate the trem effect of a pedal.

    BTW, I mentioned that vid was done as part of a review for a pedal. This one:

    I'd never heard of the make. I'd just gotten an offer for a freebie if I wanted to try it and, they hoped, write a good review.

    Truth is I am rather impressed with it. Used gently (as on that surf video) t sounds pretty typical. But its trem effect can go beyond subtle and when it is set deep and strong it takes on a rather staccato, pulsing, sound. "Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh." All while remaining very quiet.

    Another cool think is that the 'on' light pulses at the speed the trem is set at.

    Anyhow my review (sent in but not yet posted) covers all that.

    Right now Amazon has a $7 off coupon for it bringing its price down to $15 delivered. A dang good deal.

    These seem to be their foray into the field.

    I do not know how the company came to know of me, but I am glad that they did.

    They offered me two pedals, but I just accepted one for review.

    It says something about the company that in thanks for my sincere words, and as a totaal surprise, they offered to send me the other pedal -- a phase pedal -- with no need to review it. Just for my own pleasure.

    (It is supposed to arrive tomorrow.)

    I like dealing with nice people. :)

    Surf.. You have the "original" Dick Dale/Belairs style. Then a lot of the general public includes vocal groups which to many musicians is "beach music" and not "surf".

    Here we are 50 plus years later and a huge overlooked part in that actual surfers have moved away from "surf music" where "surf music" really only exists in the musician's world. True surf culture, has shifted and mixed with SoCal skate punk (and related) as well as the other end of the spectrum with all acoustic instruments and more toward traditional cultural instruments. Along with forays into instro/lounge/space textures. Instead of watching videos that have Dick Dale, the Pyramids, Musuggana Beach Party or Los Straitjackets, look for videos of people surfing and hear what music they put on it.

    I guess you all meant Eddie and the Showmen.

    Recorded this original surf-instro tune with my kids a few years back using my Squier VM Jaguar for a driven surf rock tone. My daughter wrote the main riff on bass. And her distorted kazoo solo is a real face-melter. ;)

    "Shark Bait"

    Thanks guys!

    Btw, @duceditor is the master - I can't compete with his surf chops! But here is a few bars of Surf Rider that I posted a couple years back as a tone sample from my Squier VM Jazzmaster.
