Watch the Showdown on the Silver Sands online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Essentials: Surf Guitar
British bands like The Shadows and pop producers like Jack Nietzsche's brand of surf is more elevated than their predecessors. Jack Nietzsche's record The Lonely Surfer featured baritone guitar and orchestration for a large ensemble including strings. Definitely a new take on surf music. The Shadows records also featured strings, unique harmony, and the introduction of the bolero rhythm. The rhythm section also features an acoustic guitar, where up till this point has either been an electric guitar or no rhythm guitar at all. The Shadows featured two lead guitarists who trade the melody from section to section.
