His nickname: “The King of Surf Guitar”
The reason: He pioneered the surf-rock sound by blending reverb and rock with Eastern music scales.
Another jewel in his crown: He plays a left-handed guitar “upside-down” (un-restrung).
When you might have first heard him: in 1961 at Rendezvous Ballroom in Balboa, CA, the venue where he got his start and started his movement
When you’ve definitely heard him: in the film Pulp Fiction thanks to the instantly recognizable guitar strains throbbing throughout the theme song, “Misirlou”
What Fender thought when they first heard him: probably “this guy needs to be louder!”—they soon worked with him to develop the first 100-watt guitar amp
What you hear might pour forth from his Stratocaster: “Jesse Pearl,” “Let’s Go Trippin’,” “Secret Surfer Spot,” and “Misirlou”
