Watch the Sand Flea online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Essentials: Surf Guitar
For "Sand Flea", we have a twist beat and a bass ostinato similar to Ray Charles' "What I'd Say". We start in A minor with a vamp and then modulate C# major to start the head. The head is played over a 12 bar C# blues progression. After playing the head, we'll solo using the minor pentatonic, blues scale, double stops, and occasionally targeting chord tones.
