New surf song tribute to The Ventures
« on: July 24, 2013, 09:30:13 pm »
I joined the forum last year, but this is my first post.  I am a long-time Fan of The Ventures and participated in

last year's Fan Fest for the first time.  I had a wonderful time and met so many great people and musicians.

I have written and recorded my first original song, Secret Surfer, a tribute to The Fabulous Ventures.  Feel free to visit my new site --> http://www.johndrysdalemusic.com and check it out.
Comments/feedback are welcomed.

BTW, all lead/rhythm guitar parts were recorded with my new Hallmark Custom 60.  Thank you, Bob Shade!

I'm looking forward to performing Secret Surfer at our next Fan Fest in October!  See you soon!

John

Hi, John...welcome to the forum and thanks for posting.
I enjoyed meeting you/hearing you play last year.
I just posted a message on your guestbook page.

Keep the posts coming here. ;D

Thanks for your feedback, Walt!

Yes, I will be posting pics of the Hallmark Custom soon. I'm scheduling time with a photographer for another shoot in a couple of weeks.  I may have to take a couple myself and post before then as the world needs to know about Hallmark!  I love the color...Candy Blue.  So easy to play.

Walt- John will be paired again with good friends Steve
Chestnut & Tom Connolly.   Their bass player from last
year's fest- George Schroeder will be unable to attend
the jam.   They desperately need an 'accomplished'
bass player & you'll be happy to know you've been put
at the top of their 'invite' list.   How 'bout it?

Once this week's practice is over, I'll try to offer out
several of the titles 'the guys' have been workin' on.
One thing's certain- they'll open with DESERT SURFER!
