Ex­am­ple 14 Dick Dale

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Strat Licks -

The king of ‘surf gui­tar’ uses a left-handed 1960 Stra­to­caster, strung up­side down with gauge 14 strings. This puts the first string where the sixth string is, and vice-versa. Dale is a fan of tre­molo-pick­ing his melodies, and a lash­ing of spring re­verb is an es­sen­tial com­po­nent of his surf sound.
