Permalink The Surf Guitar Book by Martin Schmidt

New Topic
Goto Page: 1 2 3 4 Next

This is exciting news! Technique books for surf guitar are rare and this looks like a great one! Martin Schmidt of The Razorblades is no stranger to the SurfGuitar101 community and the book features tablature for tracks by many SG101 members. Time to warm up the old Visa card.

I was just listening to that Phantom Surfers 7” that features “How to play bass with the Phantom Surfers” b-side. Hilarious! This reminds me of that, except serious with tons of useful stuff. It’s great to see this, I hope it sells well!

This is perfect: I'm just getting back into playing guitar after a 6 year layoff. Ordered! Now I have to wait until May.

I ordered one. Can’t wait.

Ordered. Stoked!


So cool Martin Schmidt (you son of a surf guitar).

Hi Martin (Tikidog), Do you have any preference regarding where we buy your book between the website or startnext? I want to make sure you get maximum benefit from all your work.

hi tim,
doesn‘t really matter, but i need to reach my startnext goal to get the go there Smile
the website has a slightly higher price (35 instead of 30), which covers the shipping, but you‘re welcome to donate something Smile
cd sales or skype lessons are also helpful
thanks for the support!
