Surf (Instrumental)

Tom toms and a slow low down bass, then a vibrato drenched guitar, and whammy chords... yup, it's moody and ominous, like a surfified "Harlem Nocturne" with all the haunt and none of the melody, not that it seeks to matter much. This is quite effective and enjoyable. I particularly find the bottleneck slides effective. They add a whole new dimension to surf, and provide an almost Twilight Zone twist to the moodiness. Remarkable arranging.
