Permalink Flight of the Surf Guitar Challenge!

Page 1 of 1

Let's have some fun ...

"Flight of the Surf Guitar" by The Atlantics is probably my favorite surf tune to play. It's 2 mins and 40 seconds (or so) of fun and fury. It is just a really cool song and a great exercise for surf guitar playing.

So I would love to see everybody's version of this classic tune. It will be interesting to see the different tones, styles and guitars that everybody is using. All I ask is that everybody keep it positive when commenting on the efforts submitted here.

So alright.. I'll get it started. I'm playing an Eastwood Surfcaster thru a Fender Mustang III amp to a backing track.

Have fun everybody!

Ed

WOW! Very impressive. Who's next?

this seems like much more fun than a bucket of ice water on the head! (or whatever other "challenges" are going on...

Oh, my, do I ever get that completely. Fun tune & the 2nd thing that came to my head when trying (still) to play this right is "I will NEVER let the drummer count this off...."

I was watching the WHYs just last night.....while enjoying my quest into the drippy realm of surf rock.

I’ve never done this song, but it looks like a lot of fun. Perhaps, one of these days, I’ll be back with a version as played on a Gretsch.

Mostly, I like it!
While your deviations create a totally different feel, you do hold on to the basic parts of the song.
For me,
I have always felt that the song was played way to fast originally. Actually, I feel that way about some fairly modern surf songs too.
To each their own.
Nice job!
