Surf (Instrumental)

This demo quality track sports a very fine melody. The tone is mysterious, the speed is above mid range, and the energy is infectious. I wonder what inspires an otherwise so-so band to create such great and playful surf. Mighty fun, and hard to forget. I've played this many times on my show over the years, because it is so likable, and so melodic.
