About this jam track
Inspired by great surf tracks of the past, this surf backing track gives the genre a modern twist. The harmony also leaves room for Tex-Mex influences (on the B7). The A-section follows a rapid chord progression that brings the main, upbeat groove of the song. The B-section is marked by arpeggiated patterns in the electric guitar. Faster sections are interchanged with short breaks, that leaves room for lower melodies on the guitar.

- The main guitar used on this surf pop rock jam track is a Fender Stratocaster (1994 American Standard, stock pickups)
- The only amp used this time is a Fender Blues Jr. III (I decided to go oldschool, so no modeler was used for the guitar tracking this time).
- Drums: Steven Slate Drums 5.5
- Bass: programmed with Spectrasonics Trilian
