Permalink French styled surf song? The Ventures "GINCHY" (cover)

New Topic
Page 1 of 1

Young surf guitarist #minapang asks her dad what Ginchy means. The Internet says it is a place in France. Could this be a French styled surf song then? Later on she told me it was written by an Englishman. Oh brother, I am confused....hahaha!

Anyways, all I know is, we like this song very much. It sounded great without using any overdrive for the lead guitar, and Mina thinks using a Twin Reverb does the job instead of my choice of using a vox amp. Besides, the pronunciation of the word "Ginchy" sounds like a COVID-19 fighting word often used here in this part of the world in Cantonese, meaning "to insist" and "not to give up". So, fill in the blank:

"In order to fight against COVID 19, it is important to ___ on wearing a face mask and keeping a social distance". I hope this is an easy way to remember your first Cantonese term.
