Permalink I've FINALLY got a surf band!

New Topic
Goto Page: 1 2 Next

After a really long hiatus from being in a band - I have been playing by myself for nearly ten years now - I finally managed to convince two friends to start a surf band with me. As you can tell I'm SOO excited, playing LOUD again with fellow musicians.

I have a good feeling about this whole surf band project. My friends are both a little out of practice and haven't played in years, but both are super enthusiastic and really keen on playing in a band again.

We've just had our first "real" practice (with drummer) and it worked out really well! We had a small handheld recorder just sitting there running the whole session, so please excuse the bad audio and overall mix. Here is a small cover song that turned out pretty nice IMHO.


ps. we haven't agreed on a name yet, so suggestions are welcome!


Very nice rendition! Congratulations on putting your band together. I bet you are just walking on air! 10 years of playing by yourself is a long time. That you stuck with it speaks volumes about your dedication. It's only been slightly over a year for me and I'm already slacking off and seeing a decline in my motivation. I think it's vital to play with others in order to stay challenged and avoid falling into a rut. Best wishes and please post updates.

You're not drunk if you can put your socks on while standing.

Great job and congratulations. I can relate as I often go years without playing with people, or at least playing stuff that is fast and fun to play. Have fun and keep it going.

That is so encouraging. I look forward to hearing more from you.

This is Noel. Reverb's at maximum an' I'm givin' 'er all she's got.

Well done! Wish I could convince the bass player and drummer to do some surf, I really miss it.

Awesome! Stick with it.

Be careful... choosing the name of the band usually brings the first great unpleasant argument between its members. Wink

By the way, happy to hear that you have found pleople to enjoy this kind of music. Keep on it.

You should call yourselves "The Royal Hapsburgs" and be done with it...

Sounds great!

Congrats bro on getting a group going. You gotta be stoked. I went through the same long hiatus myself. Once my son got older and better on guitar, he talked me out of retirement, and I've been loving it since.
Good luck man, and most of all.... Have fun!

Fin Doctors


That sounded excellent! Congrats on your new project and good luck.

I've used a Jaguar with Curtis Novak vintage style pickups (bridge pickup in this song), into a RI tank, into a '62 blonde bandmaster ...

... and turned it up really loud Big Grin
