One can't have too much spring reverb...the drip is very important to the genre.
Clean, undistorted/not overdriven tone was also a basic component.
Tremolo picking, and occasional a trem pedal, was used as well as extensive downward pressure on the whammy bar.
Add drums, electric bass occasionally sax or vocals and it's a pretty simple, fast paced straight dance beat.
You made a good variant...I did miss the drip though.
