Format: Paperback
This is a good book for the budding surf guitarist. The tabs are good - well laid out and true to the original songs. The CD contains a full guitar demo of each song, plus a backing track for you to fill in the guitar. I am having a lot of fun with this one!

I have a really lousy ear but I love surf music and between the tablature and the CD I've been able to play some songs on my Strat using this book. It's much more fun than learning scales or trying to have a teacher explain how to play a song to you.

I've also reviewed 'Best of Surf Guitar', 7 songs are the same between the two but the presentation is different. This one has the tablature with no commentary, plus a CD with backing tracks to play against and the option to slow the tempo if you're using a computer, while the other has a technical commentary plus a straight audio CD . I don't have a formal music vocabulary so my preference is for the ability to slow the tempo but both are effective and 'Best of Surf Guitar' has more material. Unless you have a particular interest in the 4 tunes that are not shared you may not want to purchase both.

Great beginner book for electric guitar. I bought this book expecting nothing but Beach Boys music, but has a variety. Can be played by beginners, but most of the notes are in the lower half of the fret board (12-19th fret).

Hal Leonard Corporation has produced dozens and dozens of these book/CD collections in recent years, and this is one of the better ones. For one thing, it represents a nice mix of instrumental and vocal surf standards, including songs made famous by the Beach Boys, Dick Dale, the Ventures, and Jan and Dean. Unlike some of the collections, the backing tracks of the Surf volume have a nice, authentic sound. Of course, the vocals are missing from songs such as "Surfin' U.S.A.," but all the backing instrumentals sound quite similar to those of the original early-1960s recordings. The book, like others in the series, is great for playing along, especially by ear. The one place where all of Hal Leonard's play-along books fall short of perfection is in the number of page turns required. If you like to read the tablature or the standard music notation, it's a significant problem, particularly when you are trying to negotiate a page turn and play from a transcription of Dick Dale's solo line. Overall, though, Hal Leonard's Surf volume is one their more consistent and fun packages. Highly recommended!
