I am pleased to announce the SurfGuitar101 2012 MP3 Compilation! Our 8th 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.

SG101 2011 MP3 Compilation Now Available on Archive.org

Submitted by Brian on December 22, 2011.
Site News

Our 2011 MP3 compilation has just completed, and for your convenience it has been uploaded to archive.org:

SurfGuitar101.com 2011 MP3 Compilation @ Archive.org

Once again, this compilation was done just for fun, and the contributors range from bedroom players to gigging musicians. This was an opportunity to share music, recording tips, and do something cool together.

Archive.org has been a nice home for our compilations. It provides a nice web based player, and a way to download all the files as one big .zip file. It is also a good way for music video and film producers to find the music. If you appreciate all the great things archive.org provides, please consider making a donation

Thanks again to everyone who contributed to the compilation. We had a strong showing this year with 34 entries. Please check the forums, it is likely we will schedule an IRC listening party sometime in the near future.
