Wipe Out is a rock and roll tune from the 1960's about surfing, performed and made popular by the group, The Surfaris. The term "wipe out" refers to getting knocked off one's surfboard by a wave instead of having a successful ride. Though this is a popular tune, it is also a wonderful teaching piece for off-string bowing and chromatic fingering. This piece can be performed strictly as a string orchestra selection or with the additional optional instruments: piano, drumset, electric guitar, electric bass and headless tambourine. Wipe Out correlates with Orchestra Expressions, Book Two.
