Dick Dale wails, dude. The California Stratocaster-master single-handedly invented surf rock in the '50s and is sort of a ne'er-do-well older brother of the Beach Boys, who proceeded to mainstream the surf sound for public consumption. Still shreddin' at 68, the self-taught surfer-turned-rocker has a unique — and we don't use that word lightly — style: He plays a right-handed guitar left-handed and upside down, with the strings situated ass-backward, bass string at the bottom, and the chords transposed, pretzel-like, to match the sounds percolating in Dale's one-of-a-kind skull. See to believe.
