This “Real Group” arrangement of the old Beach Boys tune is a bit tougher than is looks, medium difficulty but accessible to most groups. It is an easy moving, laid-back piece done with a kind of “airy, drunken beach bum” sound. It rides on the bass singer whose part is not terribly low. The low E at the end could be taken up the octave if necessary. This can be found on the CD Nothing But The Real Group.
