I need to play some kinda surfy sounding music like wipeout. What is a good amp setting for this?
Also, what are some other songs like this to learn
"This is The End, beautiful friend, The End"

yeah, use a lot of treble and reverb, a whammy bar and real heavy strings helps too. Dick Dale is the best example I can think of to listen to.

no.

use the most lo-fi rig you can think of, and tremolo if you have it.

just listen to dick dale. go heavy on the reverb and treble.

as for the reverb...it takes more than just a lot of it. i think a key to a "wet", surfy sounding guitar is delay. a single delay of at least 150ms, if not more. then add reverb as necessary, not so much that your guitar gets muddy though.

I like:

Phobos (he oozes cool)


Misfits and AC/DC Covers + original recordings (jazz/punk, hardcore, "shredish").

Yes Dick Dale and the Deltones will quench your thirst for surf music. Atleast it does mine.

Miserlou must be the most famous surf song around.. I suggest you give it a listen.

Clean, lots of reverb. Delay isnt necessary, they didnt have delay back in the days when surf music was big.
If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is - Infinite.

Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet - "Having an Average Weekend". You may know it as the Kids in the Hall theme song. Great surf-sounding song, and Shadowy Men are a great surf band. That song in particular, though, is a good one to learn.
As for settings, as it's been said, get reverb. And yes, delay helps too. If you've got a tremolo system, that's great, because doing slight whammy on chords is perfect for that surf sound. I read somewhere that Fender amps provide the best surf tone... I'm not sure how true that is, because I've only used Fender amps, but I guess surf originated through bands that consistently used Fender. I don't know, I just read that somewhere, that's all.
