Watch the Sand Flea online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Essentials: Surf Guitar

In this study, we start playing the bass ostinato and then jump to the farfisa organ figure using double stops. Stealing organ ideas when soloing in this style always sounds good. The head starts at the modulation to C# major. Over the I chord, I'm playing double stop out of common major bar chord shapes. The IV chord template is a dom9th chord. I'm arpeggiating through this chord and alternating between the sus4 and the 3rd.

For my turnaround, I'm using the minor pentatonic. The solo for this tune only uses two positions on the guitar. I'm using the C# minor pentatonic scale, C# blues scales, and double stops based off the C# minor, F# major, and C# major chord shapes.
