Dick Dale played left-handed, but because he learned on a right-handed guitar, his left-handed guitars had the strings reversed, bass strings on the bottom. That was part of his unique sound, that and his Middle East ancestry.
I think there's a tune called the Road to Damascus?

I will have to dig out the CD, King of the Surf Guitar. He was still performing recently. RIP, Dick Dale.

Yup, one of those guys that sets the trend, not follows it. One of the greats and a fantastic performer. I've seen him twice and he was amazing.

"I make my guitar scream with pain or pleasure or sensuality," he told NPR. "It makes people move their feet and shake their bodies. That's what music does."

Look closely at the guitar strings, bass strings on the treble side of the fingerboard, a gold Lefty Strat. 8)


The shell on the wall is a gigantic abalone. Not many of those out there anymore.

Oh My. I really like Miserlou, one of the best YT video's playing the guitar like a maniac!
