The Beach Boys have recently teamed up with Capitol Records and Fender to offer fans a chance to be part of rock and roll history.
A newly uncovered track from The Beach Boys archives, “Goin’ To The Beach,” (which will be included on their upcoming box set, Made In California), was originally recorded without a lead guitar track in 1979 during sessions for “Keepin’ The Summer Alive.”
Guitarists are invited to play along to the track for the chance to win a custom, “Made In California” Stratocaster and a VIP prize pack from Fender and Capitol.
Although ineligible because of her endorsement with Fender, Hayley McLean couldn’t resist the opportunity to play along to this uncovered gem.
“I’ve always been a huge fan of the Beach Boys…’Pet Sounds’ was a staple album growing up in the McLean fam,” she said. “They’re set to be releasing 60+ unreleased tracks from back in the day and this song is one of them, except it has no lead guitar track…why not lay down a part and see if they’d have me play on it? If nothing else it’s a nice excuse to have some fun and play along with the boys themselves. Recorded in one take using pro tools 10, a 2009 standard Tele with Seymour Duncan tapped Tele pickups, 2 EP boosters and a Vox AC30.”
