Pre Surf (Instrumental)
This has long been one of my favorite presurf pieces. It's very simple, and leans on a couple of nice changes heavily. It's a tune that deserves a surf treatment. The damped plucking is melodic and delicate, and the melody line very endearing. Even the chord parts are catchy.
