Twanging Tuesday # 36
Richard Monsour aka Dick Dale is an US-American musician and pioneer of the surfing music. Dale was one of the most high-powered guitarists of the early 1960s years. Together with Link Wray he is valid as style-pedagogic for guitarist like Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townshend and Eddie van Halen. He uses especially made fender's guitars and fender's amplifiers and experimented with echo effects. Dale is a very expressive guitarist. He always claims to be no good guitarist in the classical sense. With his experimental play technology he developed his quite own, unmistakeable sound. Dales brand name is the quick Staccato poster of the guitar strings (for example, with Misirlou). Besides, he made the excessive use of sound in the instrumental surfing music popularly. His song Misrilou was featured on the soundtrack of Quentin Tarantino's movie Pulp Fiction.
So enjoy some surf punk at this moment and have a good week all you out there.
