Watch the Surfer's Mambo online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Essentials: Surf Guitar

For this etude, we're going to move to the Atlantic Ocean and look at the contributions of legendary Cuban guitarist Manuel Galban. Manuel Galban is best known for his work with Los Zafiros, Dirección Nacional de Música, and Grupo Batey. Although, my favorite record of his was a collaboration with Ry Cooder called Mambo Sinuendo. The arrangements, spring drenched guitar, stereo tremolo, Duane Eddy inspired guitar sound, and Cuban rhythms make this record undeniably surf.
