Ok so I just finish building a weber standalone reverb tank and decided... hey how do I sound like Dick Dale. i really wanna know if you guys know of any good begineers to surf guitar websites or something along those lines. Or just any tips, like what scales do they use? what are some commen 'chord' progressions. Maybe some helpful surf basslines?

Any help I can get would be very much appreciated!

Lots and lots of surf links here at the Tsunami Soul Surf Music Page.

I especially recommend Surf Guitar 101
