Eighties Surf (Instrumental)

The lead guitar here is vibratoed, and played single note style. The melody is like something Los Straitjackets or the Ray Beats might do. The keys use a whistling bell like tone, and the guitar, while dry, employs surf chords and a ringing sound. It's quite a pleasant track. In the break, there are glissandoes and a pretty surfy baseline.
