We use the transient grating technique to generate narrow-band, widely tunable, in-plane surface magnetoelastic waves in a nickel film. We monitor both the structural deformation of the acoustic wave and the accompanying magnetic precession and witness their intimate coupling in the time domain. Strikingly, when an in plane magnetic field is applied parallel to the acoustic propagation direction, we witness its resonant coupling to the ferromagnetic resonance.
