Spiderman Theme dotdotdotdotdot
Spaghetti Surf (Instrumental)

Big twang and double picked char pits the melody of "Spiderman Theme" against the riff from Pink Floyd's "Lucifer Sam." This is a totally deluxe arrangement. Were Pink Floyd a surfband, they surely would have sounded like this! Amazing!

Mi Carro dotdotdotdot
Spaghetti Surf (Instrumental)

Grumbly double picked leads dribble a moody melody line while the second guitar charms. Plenty of changes and rhythm, brooding bass lines, and relentless drums that include some very tasteful bridges. Excellent.

La Venganza del Moro Maclet dotdotdotdotdot
Spaghetti Surf (Instrumental)

Threatened by tremolo, dark glissandos, and a menacing riff, you are held captive as "La Venganza del Moro Maclet" evolves. There are some really good guitar counter-plays going on, with the two playing melodies and patterns that are very different,m but add up to an ensemble of significant power and attraction.
