About thie song

---------------

This little ditty found on the Ventures 1963 Lp "Surfing" is a simple

song to play, but there is a trick to it. The bass and two guitars are

tuned down a full step. From low to high the guitar is tuned D G C F A D.

When playing this transcription the chords and leads will sound higher

than the Lp, for example an Em chord will sound like a Dm chord on the

record. Well you get the idea.
