Surfer Joe & Band live at KFJC - California 2016 !!!

I just love Lorenzo's style of playing. When I saw him earlier this year, I couldn't see him up close, but I heard his INCREDIBLY beautiful tremolo picking. In watching this video, I see that Lorenzo picks an awful lot of downstrokes unless he's tremolo picking or just going too fast and then he alternate picks as one might expect.

Does this aspect of Lorenzo's picking specifically contribute to the quality of his tremolo? I thought it might since downstroke picking nearly everything means he's essentially always moving his hand at tremolo speed when he's playing at high velocity.

Maybe Surfer Joe would comment? Smile

Hi Jonathan and thanks for the compliment. I am not sure how much downstrokes only contributes to the sound in general, but I certainly like them more than upstrokes, more energy and attack. This is probably why I got naturally used to play mostly downstrokes, I am certainly not correct technically in doing this, so this should not be taken as an example probably Smile

Lorenzo "Surfer Joe" Valdambrini

Listening to a voice in my head saying ... you need more records and ... The Lively Ones.

When you have to shoot ... shoot! Don't talk.
"Los Grainders"
"Planeta Reverb"

Rain outside, and the song in my head that I wished to record for the 2016 Comp but have no time to do so.




NSSR on my tablet (thanks John Blair for the app) in front of the Packer game reading Dick Dale bio. Feel like geek boy.

"Runnin' Strong with The Ventures" - original vinyl. I know: "not surf." But hard to argue "Moon Journey" isn't surf. They have their moments. Smile

The Boston Pops orchestra and choir PBS Xmas special


What else

Los Straitjackets - God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

Freshwater Surfin'

The Murray Basin

"Chumming" came today, so The Halibuts, with some Aquasonics mixed in the loop. And Radio Prague coming at the other ear. Full surf when the station fades.
