This book is extremely well done. It clearly represents not only the author's expertise, but a tremendous amount of work. Its very polished. I'm looking forward to working through this!

Tiki,
Mine arrived last week... great book. A lot of the material.. I already knew. But you brought up some theory that I was unaware I was executing (as in "Hmm, so that's what I'm doing here on this tune"). Life is about learning.

You mentioned the Fenders and Gretschs as surf music instruments of preference in the book but, sadly, there is no mention of the Mosrite guitar. Are they and Mosrite players kind of scarce in Europe? Maybe if you ever do anther round on this book theme, you might consider mentioning the Mosrite. It is very much a part of US surf guitar.

All said - a great book.. always wanted to learn "Fasten Seatbelts". It's a great set opener.
Be well

Hey Johnny Mosrite,
cool, that's exactly the intention of the book...making things clearer and demistify them ( intead of saying i play some crazy high note chords naming them properly as triads and so on.)
I agree about the Mosrite - wasn't on my radar and I don't know too many people playing them, but for sure, that would be a nice surf guitar, too!
Thanks for the compliments and have fun with Fasten Seatbelts!

Hi Tikidog,

I just received my copy of your book in the mail today from Double Crown Records. I’m very excited to begin working though it, once my thumb and wrist injuries heal up (both the left and right!)

I’ve looked through the entire book, and I’m very appreciative of the way you approach and have organized the material. I particularly like how you have developed the techniques tutorials. The progression of exercises should be very helpful in mastering skills from the bottom up. Though I had already begun working on surf guitar material before knowing about your book, all of your hard-earned skills, as you present them in the lessons, will hopefully become shortcuts towards proficiency and understanding of the genre.

I must say, your list of song collaborators is impressive, and anyone following the contemporary surf guitar scene should be quite familiar with their names.

Certainly, you have put a lot of hard work into this. I’m sure this was a labor of love, and I thank you for sharing what you have learned with your audience.

I hope to follow up with further comments once I’m able to work through a good part of the material.

Cheers,

TikiBobby

Mine arrived yesterday and I was duly impressed. I’ve been playing since 1966, so there were a whole lot of surprises, instructionally, but having all of this information in one place would sure have come in handy back when I was learning the craft.

The songs are great and the information on equipment is, once again, something that would be of tremendous value when someone is learning their way around Surf guitar.

The quality of the book itself, the printing and the materials used, are of the highest order. The spiral binding makes this book much easier to use and certainly comes in handy when you are playing the exercises. I would recommend this book to any player, of any skill level.
