Man, he's got awesome tone!! I love Dick Dale! :rawk:


The Deltones sure looked happy to be there. :snax:


That sure looks like Dave Grohl on drums in the 2nd vid. He rocks too.

Avoid playing the amplifier at a volume setting high enough to produce a distorted sound through the speaker-Fender Guitar Course-1966

Duh... I never realized Dick Dale plays with the bass strings on the bottom... >>>> Bonehead <<<<


You are not alone!


I believe Doyle Bramhall II does, too. He plays a left handed guitar but keeps it strung as if it was a righty.



Heard a PBS interview on Dick Dale. Said he played with such heavy strings that he used to shred picks on them.
