                    Dick Dale and his Del-tones

This is how i play the song, its kinda a combination of different versions.

    Legend
------------------
h- hammer on
p- pull off
/- slide up
\- slide down
TM-tremelo picking
x- chuck string
b- bend

    Notes
------------------
*There is tremelo picking throughout pretty much the entire song
*On most of the slides, you should continue to pick very fast
*Getting the perfect tone can be difficult. If you have a wah pedal,
 you can bring out the trebel with it.

*************************** INTRO *********************************

  *For this beginning slide, chuck most of the strings and move down
   the fretboard quickly, continuously picking. Also, when playing on
   a single string, try using your left hand to dampen the other strings
   to prevent from hitting them.

    the other notes.

************************* Melody 2 **************************

For this part of the song, you play the exact same notes as the first part,
only it's all on the high e string. Picking this fast on the high e string
is harder than on the low E string, so it might take some practice. Make sure you keep 
pick strokes very small and only hit the one string.
