Announcing the 2014 SG101 MP3 Compilation!

Submitted by Brian on October 12, 2014.
Site News

I am pleased to announce the SurfGuitar101 2014 MP3 Compilation! Our 10th one! Just like before, this is a way for members to share music, recording tips, and to just have fun. The main emphasis is fun, so please send in an entry no matter what your skill level is. Here are the rules:

  1. You must be a member of this website to submit an mp3.
  2. You may submit only 1 mp3.
  3. The mp3 you submit must not have appeared on any "official" release before. Likewise, please don't submit anything that is destined for an official release in the future.
  4. The mp3 must be 8 MB in size or less.
  5. There is a good chance the comp will end up on Archive.org. Therefore, you must agree to their Creative Commons (Attribution, Non-Commercial, No-Derivatives) License for your mp3.
  6. The deadline for submitting an mp3 is Saturday, December 20th, 2014.

I have created an Official 2014 MP3 Compilation Forum Thread. Please use that thread to discuss the compilation and to get information on how to submit an mp3. Please use that thread if you'd like to find a fellow member to work with on the project. With the magic of digital recording and the Internet, remote collaborations are possible. Make your own virtual surf band! Let the comp begin!

Please check out our prior compilations if you haven't seen them already: 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013.

New feature at SG101: Surf band map!

Submitted by Brian on October 12, 2014.
Site News

Inspired by the map created by Kahuna Kawentzmann, we now have a surf band map of our own. Any member of SG101 can add a band to the map by filling out a form. Our map allows one to tag a band as either "active" or "inactive", and you can filter the results accordingly. This lets you view all bands, only active bands, or only the inactive bands.

Our map is only a few weeks old and we already have 277 bands on the map from all around the world!

I personally enjoy seeing where all the 60's surf bands were from. And it is really great to see all the modern bands. I hope you enjoy this new feature! Do you know of some bands that we are missing? Please add them.

Bands

Hi, I'm Pablo and I'm the guitaris of Surfonica, an Instrumental Surf Band form Hurlingham, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Recently we released our first EP entitled ''Tales from the Sea of Istanbul'' you can hear it and download it (for free!) at our Bandcamp page!

We also have recorded a full length album that's being mixed by me at the moment, the idea is to release this album before the end of this year, so you'll be hearing about us sooner than you think :)

Hope you enjoy our EP!

Best regards from Argentina!
