Pipeline is an all-time classic surf instrumental. The original was by California combo The Chantays, but it’s been very widely covered by all kinds of great artists.
I’ve made two videos. In the first I take a look at the original Chantays version of the tune. Then in a second video I look at one of my favourite cover versions played by Johnny Thunders.
A basic tab for the Chantays version can be found below. For a detailed, downloadable tab of both rhythm and lead parts check out my Patreon page, where you’ll also be able to find my backing track and a complete tab of the Thunders version.
For this tab, I’ve merged the rhythm and lead parts into one so you’ll be able to play the whole thing on your own.
