Permalink Nokie Edwards & Gerry McGee inspired HOUSE of the Rising Sun (instrumental cover)

New Topic
Page 1 of 1

The young members (10 and 11) of our band keep asking me if this is surf. I am not quite sure what to say too but all I tell them is, Nokie and McGee played this song not with a whole lot of splashy drip sound, and we love the Ventures, and I could be wrong, but the Ventures, Nokie and McGee, to us, the 3 or any of the 3 = surf. Would you consider what we surf rock? Please tell me so I tell the girls and give them a good answer.

The kids sure have put in lots of effort in playing the song, yet I guess you can tell we have fun playing this song each time.

Hope you like our music. Cheers!

p.s.: I am still waiting for the right saddle to arrive for my Jaguar, the Eastwood mosrite styled guitar needs to be new strings and a set up (but it sounds really good) and 1 of the Strat lipstick PUs caved in and needs to be repaired (and I miss it already) so for the time being, hope it's okay we use alternative guitars. :p

"It's been a strange day. First I find a hat full of money then I was chased by an angry man with a guitar"

Very good. Smile

Love it! So wonderful to play together as a family.
