Released in December 1961, “Surfin'” was soon aired on KFWB and KRLA, two of Los Angeles’ most influential teen radio stations. It was a hit on the West Coast, going to number three in Southern California, and peaked at number 75 on the national pop charts. By the final weeks of 1961 “Surfin'” had sold more than 40,000 copies. Murry Wilson told the boys he did not like “Surfin'”. By now the de facto manager of the Beach Boys, Murry got the group’s first paying gig on New Year’s Eve, 1961, at the Ritchie Valens Memorial Dance in Long Beach, headlined by Ike & Tina Turner. Brian recalls how he wondered what they were doing there: “five clean-cut, unworldly white boys from a conservative white suburb, in an auditorium full of black kids”. Brian describes the night as an “education”_he knew afterwards that success was all about “R&B, rock and roll, and money”.

Recognize chords much faster than you would without such knowledge. Practice everyday so you can learn off of what you rehearsed the previous day.
