Dick Dale - Surfin the Wedge - Live on TV 1963 Ed Sullivan Show

Dick Dale - Surfin the Wedge - Live on TV 1963 Ed Sullivan Show Dick Dale (born Richard Anthony Monsour on May 4, 1937) is a Lebanese American surf rock guitarist, known as The King of the Surf Guitar. He pioneered the surf music style, drawing on Eastern musical scales and experimenting with reverberation. He worked closely with Fender to produce custom made amplifiers,[1] including the first-ever 100-watt guitar amplifier. He pushed the limits of electric amplification technology, helping to develop new equipment that was capable of producing distorted, "thick, clearly defined tones" at "previously undreamed-of volumes." The "breakneck speed of his single-note staccato picking technique" as well as his showmanship with the guitar is considered a precursor to heavy metal music,influencing guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen.

No cord on the guitar, no mic in evidence but the vocals are crystal clear, at 1:44 he says something that can't be heard, but the guitar picking seems perfectly in sync. If it was a live show then that would be very impressive. But they cut to him dancing and then when Ed goes to supposedly shake his hand the camera doesn't follow him. I'm thinking that the show was live but the song was prerecorded to get the sync right. Very enjoyable video and in those days television was more like a theater performance with other tricks slipped in.

Here is a little history for you! We used to surf in Newport Beach in the late '50s, early '60s and went to the Rendezvous Ballroom in Newport when Dick Dale was playing there. We invented the "Surfer Stomp" and would go every weekend! Surf all day and dance all night! Dick was kind of a greaser and when he started to surf, we all laughed at him because he would just sit in the line up and never take off. He had black hair, no tan and used lots of Bryllcream while all us surfers had blonde hair that we had to flip out of our eyes all the time! Hilarious and really fun times!

The singing at the beginning was definitely the wrong approach as it had nothing in common with the guitar solo. This really wanted to be purely instrumental. Since I don't remember hearing him sing in my childhood, he may well have learned that lesson early on.

I was also graced by finding a very used 64 Vibroverb W/15" JBL that sounds wonderful.That heavy beast tweaked my old knee going downstairs evacuated in a fire at 1 AM one scary night....we were fine but knee still hurts:( Wow Lana I'm an earthlink guy too and will email you soon.

I don't think you can tell but he was a self taught musician. His guitar is strung right handed and he plays left handed. in other words, the low strings are on the bottom and the high strings on the top. Drove a lot of guitarists nuts trying to duplicate his music.

Left-handed guitarists have always fascinated me for some reason, because its always more difficult for them to first off find a left-handed guitar, to practice and learn on, especially way back then, plus usually music notes more often than not, were written by and for right-handed people, and unless they are self-taught, they may have had to learn from right-handed teachers. But he does play some amazing riffs.

A lot of Mediteranean music inspiration ... the technic of playing the guitar is like the italian mandoline sounds. For the music we hear at 1:00 the famous Misirlou (old greek song). At 1:58 and especially at 2:11 " The malaguena", traditional spanish music (Jose feliciano version for example) . and some sounds are souding like "cavallos blancos" (blanca group version for example) a spanish gypsy song . The mediteranean music got in fact a lot of arab music influance .

What was the deal with Ed Sullivan? He always seemed to be championing the cause of young performers and telling people that they were actually good kids (even though they had 'long' hair and played rock music!)

Was that an actual left-handed guitar Dick was playing in this clip?
Tab Lature
Tab Lature - 7 years ago
Hendrix was left handed, as is Paul McCartney, but they both "reversed" their strings, from top to bottom, and flipped their guitars around so the arrangement was correct and "normal" (big-at top/small-at bottom) in the left handed position, same as the right.

if you notice, Dale played what's called "upside down". Even though his custom Strat is properly mirror imaged for left handed playing, he still strings it up as though it were for right handed playing, i.e. the little E on top and the big E on bottom, same as on a right handed guitar, thus the "upside down".

Dan Seals, the late great country picker and singer, formerly of England Dan and John Ford Coley fame (and a brother to the Seals of Seals and Croft), also played "upside down". It looks totally bizarre and awkward to those who play strung up normally, but Seals and Dale were awesome pickers, nonetheless.

Dan O'Moore

if you listen closely you can here a few playing errors that reflect exactly to the RH fingering & the up & down plucking/strokes of his left hand imaged. I'm not saying he played badly, far from it I love this sound & this artist, just joining this little chorus saying yes it's live & there is evidence therein to prove it. If I was to go to the trouble & examine his album/single recording of this song against this performance I could likely show you the exact differences... but I'll spare myself. & he's singing to an overhead boom mike, you can see him on occasion lift his face to target his voice toward the mike likely due being a stage performer studio recording artist he is used to singing into a mike & felt a little distracted not having the mike on a stand in front of him.

Musical talent? I think that would include the Dick Dale of Welk fame--most assuredly. Lawrence would have nothing but the finest musical talent in his orchestra--most all by his choosing. World renowned clarinetist Pete Fountain (recently passed just last month) occupied the chair in the woodwind section just in front of Dale for a while. Welk wouldn't have had Dale there were his "musical talent" not at least comparable.

+Stargazer88 If Dick Dale and Leo fender didnt collaborate, a lot of music would never have been written.
Stargazer88
Stargazer88 - 6 years ago
He certainly was among the first to chase a chase a sound that in some ways great contributions to metal. His work with Leo in making more powerful, loud and reliable amps was ground breaking. The fact that he did't really play blues based guitar, but drew inspiration from more ethnic and possibly classical music. Mostly because he was a drummer before he was a guitarist and to this day says he plays drums on the guitar. But of course in other ways he is deeply grounded in the genre that he invented. Surf guitar is loud and powerful, but also mostly clean and based largely on melody rather than riffs and hooks. I would't call him the first metal guitarist. But he pioneered a lot of the stuff that later on would be important in the metal genre.

+Richard Sabsay lol, yea, surf guitar is often described as the music for sportists, it often has that bouncy rhythm which sounds very cool for my ears, but in my opinion, Dale and The Ventures are the best surf rock musicians in my opinion, Dale is a very special guitarist because he wrote these new scales and combined them with other scales (major, minor, pentatonics) which made the sound that was kinda new to a lot of guitarists
Rick Dagger
Rick Dagger - 7 years ago
+Један Човек I totally agree with you. Mr. Dale took this classic pentatonic scale and put his Middle Eastern influence on it At the time nobody knew but that makes it even cooler. I work in the music business and I love guitars and the study of musicology in general. But to me the most interesting part of this is the fact that the apple pie loving American baseball playing rockers who laid claim to the Surf sound owe so much of it to the middle eastern style of music what a kick in the head. I suppose Donald Trump would ban surf guitar LOL
Gus Fring
Gus Fring - 7 years ago

There was a point in my life when I was ignorant and didn't give songs like this the time of day, given I heard it on so many movies and shows. Now, I'm blown away by this. Listen to that Fender tone and reverb! You can tell it's super loud, during a time that people weren't doing their guitar's very loud. Playing that guitar backwards and upside down, even adds to his tone because his down strokes are like up strokes, slightly giving a different twang than playing normally.

The publisher should change the title from The Lawrence Welk Show to The Ed Sullivan Show though. When I saw the video title I thought it was kind of if DD was on Lawrence Welk but there is a video on Youtube that has been on here for awhile of The Chantays playing their  surf hit Pipeline in 1963 on his show!

Lawrence welk was mainly show tunes, polkas and waltz music.  I 'knew' for a fact that this would be a misprint, but decided to peek anyways. 

Ironically, after doing research to remember what type of music he specialized in, I seen that there WAS a Dick Dale that performed on there, just not the one we believed lol

Certainly looks like he just took a right handed guitar and flipped it upside down with the low notes he plays seemingly from the high e string. Edit: Just looked it up and he did indeed flip right handed guitar upside down early on without restringing it,like Doyle Bramhall with Roger Waters

How did Sullivan stay on the air for so long? At the end of the performance he walks completely out of frame to shake Dale's hand, and his camera guy does not follow along. For a few seconds all you see is curtain. It's like amateur night at the local bar.

Also -- Dick Dale should never sing.
Izzi Michaels

ericynot, i agree, as most people do, sullivan was lost most of the time, he would often pronounce the guests name incorrectly or get it completely wrong. but back then only well connected older WHITE MEN had these types of jobs and when you narrow your choice down to such a small dedmographic, this is what you got. (even johnny carson used to make fun of sullivan's "style")

+ericynot Every Sunday night Ed Sullivan featured ten million dollars' worth of talent for free. He didn't make himself the show. He got the hell out of the way and let the world's best dancers, singers, jugglers and performers do what they did best. Imagine! Gee, we're so much luckier now to have crisply staged HD video of AutoTuned bimbos who can't perform live and who can't entertain because they're hiding behind a dozen aerobics instructors.

I wonder if the uploader deliberately named the show the Lawrence Welk Show instead of Ed Sullivan Show to avoid the YouTube copyright infringement detection filter as there's not many Ed Sullivan clips uploaded by other users and there's an Ed Sullivan Show official channel.

I believe he was plugged in. He was that good, and Ed Sullivan was one of the few shows where rockers were live (mostly). The video is too fuzzy to see a thin cord and they crop off the bottom of his guitar 98% of the time. The video and audio match up, and they didn't use a lame fadeout like a lot of lip-syncs.

Note that he's got a left hand guitar, but it's strung for a right hander (tiny strings on top)!

Good guitar work from Dick Dale and --- what a music video should have looked like...{ Unlike the trash on MTV ! ugh! }   { Agree with Melisa B.] That was Ed Sullivan who hosted a very popular Variety TV program.iirc Ed had The Everly Brothers , and Elvis Presley and other such acts on his program.  Lawrence Welk was a musician ( accordion- Polka  usually ) and a band-leader who later got a hour-long weekly music show himself. [ Sponsored by Dodge Cars. ] He and his employees put out some good music. L.W. has passed away but several of the former L.W. Show members perform at a place in Escondido, Cal..  L.Welk. did have the surf-guitar band "The Chantays" on his program in 1963.
