    Anyone have a clue what kind of theory goes into writing instrumental "surfer" music?

    I'm talking things like The Ventures or Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet.
  2. couldn't tell you who any of those bands are. all i can say is that Jack Johnson freakin rocks.
    check out his surf videos, surf video sound tracks and albums.
  3. With the Ventures you just wait till some other band has a hit then record it as an instrumental. They did do origionals but their remakes kept the busy for a few decades.
