  • Is Dick Dale the greatest Surf guitarist ever?

    Or is Dick merely a good guitarist who got lucky?

    I've never seen him playing a guitar while surfing.

    **bleep** dale is awesome at what he does, plus he's still awesome at like age 75. Many guiatrst try to get good at a lot of styles, but if you really want any recognition you need to be the best at one thing or at least in the tops line up.

     

    I was thinking about tearing all the string off my guitar except one and being the best 1 string axeman out there. I bet there wouldn't be that many of us either

     

    Seriously he's good, at what he does

      **bleep** Dale might be the most ideosynchatic guitarist ever, regardless of genre.

       

      Mikeo, I think Seasick Steve beat you to the one string guitar thing. Then the White Stripes guy ripped him off in that movie with Jimmy Page and Edge.

    Could be argued that any guitarist who has that much good fortune is lucky...but it should be said Dick Dale also helped defined what surf music became.
