    Nice medley!! I don't know if it was intentional, but you even managed to slip in a few bars of Peter Gunn....

    Yes it was intentional. It's not really a composition but a mash up medley. Perhaps I'll lose points for that. It's mostly influenced by 'Surfing With The Alien' (hence the title).

    It's not a competition.

    Done mine and it's in the playlist.

    I sort out a picture later.

    That’s pretty funny  =) When it started I knew I recognised it, but couldn’t name it.

    Good job! 

    Cheers. When I started I'd basically heard Misirlou, Wipeout and Apache. So I did some research and found out a bit about the scales and sounds, and that there are a few sub genres (not as many as metal!) but one of which took in shows like The Munsters, so went down that route.

    Gearwise, the tips said single coil and big reverbs. As I currently use Garageband for recording, I found a setting to experiment with the tune, intending to re-amp though an external amp and reverb pedals later. I did try that, but amusingly got one reverb so over the top that it wouldn't stop and I had to pull out the power lead! For the single coil I went with my Tokai Goldstar which is a lawsuit era strat. In the end, I stuck with Garageband for the rest. Finally I got the waves sample from freesound.org

    Ok, I'm starting on this. Going for proper surf. The new 'Hot Springs' reverb on the HX Stomp is driptastic.

    Done my track, just got to mix and master it. I thought I'd finished, but coming back to listen to it, the mix is crap. Back to square on there. 

    Surf, with a twist.

    How's everyone getting on?

    I see there's some possible surf guitar inspiration on the thread at the link below:

    I think I’d look silly in one of those dresses.

    Despite all the best intentions, I have not managed to produce a track, sorry to let down the contest. I've found the need to learn the basics of Reaper, which has taken most of my limited time. I did come up with some surfy ideas.... I still hope to record some surf tunes eventually.

    Starting mine a bit late....but I should have it done by the deadline. Though I was going to suggest extending to allow more entries?

    That's an option if there are some in progress.
