I getting into a bit of surf for no particular reason but seeing as there isn't a tutorial or column or anything:

Does anyone know any basic things you need to play surf? Does it have any characterisic chord progs, scales, keys, anything? What amp settings should I use? Any help is much appreciated!

maybe go there? i'm not sure i just googled it, i'm not sure if you can get anything useful from it
also look up dick dale songs (like misirlou in guitar hero 2 if you've played it) you may find some different progressions in his songs
