Lesson notes

This fairly simplistic Beach Boys song is one that defined a genre. Surf rock can be summed up using the musical elements that comprise Surfin’ USA. From the double-stop intro to the chugging blues based verse riff all the way through the short guitar solo, this song is made to fit easily under your fingers. In this lesson you’ll get an in depth look at not just the guitar parts, note for note, but also some of the ideas behind the songwriting which helped make this song a chart topper.
