Podcast Episode #6 is Now Available!

John Blairs' Rocking Classical New Years Eve Extravaganza

In this podcast, Lady Reverb digs deep to uncover the rich vein of classical melodies played in the surf and euro-instro style. Our own CaptainSpringfield (AKA Warren Binder) takes the mic to surf maven John Blair for an in-depth interview. We also present brand new music from The Barbwires and Los Twang Marvels.

You can get it on our podcast page or it should be available in iTunes shortly.

Thanks Lady Reverb, Danny, Warren, and John Blair!

Announcing the SG101 2008 MP3 Compilation!

I am pleased to announce the SurfGuitar101 2008 MP3 Compilation! Our 4th one! Just like before, this is a way for all members to share music, recording tips, and to just have fun. The main emphasis is fun, so please send in an entry no matter what your skill level is. Here are the rules:
  1. You must be a member of this website to submit an mp3.
  2. You may submit only 1 mp3.
  3. The mp3 you submit must not have appeared on any "official" release before. Likewise, please don't submit anything that is destined for an official release in the future.
  4. The mp3 must be 8 MB in size or less.
  5. There is a good chance the comp will end up on Archive.org. Therefore, you must agree to their Creative Commons (Attribution, Non-Commercial, No-Derivatives) License for your mp3.
  6. The deadline for submitting an mp3 is Friday, December 19th, 2008.
I have created an Official 2008 MP3 Comp Forum Thread. Please use that thread to discuss the compilation and to get information on how to submit an mp3. Please use that thread if you'd like to find a fellow member to work with on the project. With the magic of digital recording and the internet, remote collaborations are possible. Make your own virtual surf band! Let the comp begin!

Please check out our prior compilations if you haven't seen them already: 2005 2006 2007.
