Great guitar! Love the intro on the acoustic, and then picking it up with the surf rock and the synth.

I was born in '70 but grew up listening to a lot of 60's stuff, like Beatles and Elvis. However, The Ventures were a huge presence on my childhood playlists, and my siblings and I used to air-jam to their Telstar album, with my brother and sister "playing" guitar on tennis rackets while I stacked up throw pillow to jam the organ parts. Anyway... All of that to say that I'm a big fan of surf rock instrumentals. Love this tune you put together.
