Description : Hey guys this is a new experimental track that I made using a recording of me playing guitar. It turned into something of a chill/tropical/deep house mashup. I think its a really unique sound that I can call my own, and hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Thanks for listening and be sure to comment with any critiques/advice!

If you would like to get in touch with me or download the track, feel free to contact me with the email on my profile page.

wow man! refreshing as an eucalypthus bath in -40 degrees! Thanks for sharing! The waveform is clear, weak a little bit, but clear! Only 1 thing, the title waves is so ordinary getting tired of, but it`s your music! Not trying to be offensive... anyway GREAT track mate! Faved!

If you interested in a remix from it please notify me! I will contact you then! Cheers!

Agree with Prelude...

That awesome guitar isn't enough in the track...but on the other side, if brilliant things are too short, you have a call to come back again and listen it...

Hello Rico! :-)

This is stg different in this site...some new horizon on the 'making music' business or art :-)

Incredible fusion music from the very top side of the race...I listened many times before writing and the cool thing is that I can't say this or that are so good, the whole thrack and the attitude for create stg unique is what I appreciate...brilliant artwork...

Hats off and shake hands dear friend, Danke

Hey bro...had to check it out...Superbly done and yes...a very unique track....I've read all the comments and everyone has hit all my points...the guitar...awesome...panflute....awesome...but what struck me was the way you set up the rhythm with the kick on the alternate beat.....not at all predictable....everything pulled together makes this a great track...SWEET!!!!!
15ludwicke replied 2nd Jan 2015 - 9 years ago
Thanks dsa! Funny thing about those kicks is that because i played the guitar on swung 16ths I had to make the kicks unpredictable to actually fit the rhythm of the guitar. Glad you liked the track and thanks again for the support!

VicaMOOR 1st Jan 2015 04:08 -  9 years ago
Really like this one. I see why you labeled it under "chill". I find it creative how you sampled yourself and came up with this around it. Just wish certain elements, such as the kicks, the snaps, and the drop could be a bit more defined... in sort of that trance way. No big deal though. Doesn't take anything away.
15ludwicke replied 1st Jan 2015 - 9 years ago
Hey man thanks for the kind words, and i was going to go for a defined drop but then i thought it would take away from the chill part of the track. Look for a free download on my sound cloud soon!

Its started out with he guitar, which I loved.Didnt know you would take it where you did. Its techno chill bro. im really feelin it. Nice work. Love those fades.

15ludwicke replied 1st Jan 2015 - 9 years ago
Thanks man, i like that you enjoyed the track!
DanGoldstein 31st Dec 2014 23:14 -  9 years ago
2:14 brings it all down to start again, but with all the knowledge and learning that you bring to it from the first section. It is a compelling track. the bottleblow, or pan flute, or what ever that sound is, gives it a unique flavor which is really exotic and I love your work. congrats.
15ludwicke replied 1st Jan 2015 - 9 years ago
thanks man! I know the pan flute was a bit cheesy yes, but i think it went perfectly with the track
StaticNomad 31st Dec 2014 01:49 -  9 years ago
Hi there. I really like the guitar playing right from the start and this is an interesting piece of music. Not as predictable as I thought it might be.

Waves right at the start set the scene nicely and the filtering kind of suggests the guitar might be being played underwater.

0:32 nice pad sound and sub bass hit. Following those guitar chords nicely.

1:07 good low bass tone and then some steadier kick to push things forward. Your lead 'tropical' instrument (pan flute?) is quite fun. Sort of a bit cheesy but it fits the vibe. Blissful chillout music.

I thought more of the guitar should have been included in that section though it certainly returns later but only briefly. I'd really like to hear it worked in in the second half, probably with a fatter, steadier beat.

Doesn't have to go full on into club music but you've got some moving, epic sounds here so layering everything up into something more powerful would be fitting. It could still be kind of chilled.

Just a few thoughts. If no changes, still a good track.
15ludwicke replied 31st Dec 2014 - 9 years ago
Hey Static,
Glad you think that the guitar is not predictable, thats really what I was going for. As for the playing it underwater, I was going for it more so being played on the shores of a beach in the sand, but the underwater idea sounds cooler and makes me look like I was really thinking about the filtering when I was doing the song so ill go with that. Glad you liked the cheesy pan flute as well, I liked the vibe is gave the entire piece so i stuck with it. Now that you mention the whole fixing the track business, I was actually going back and reworking it and might release it again so be sure to check back for it!

Thanks for all the comments,
Rico L.

hi. this is very cool track - the guitar playing is quite simple in a way but the processing you added was excellent. Very fine downbeat vibes! That's what chillout is all about. Now after listening to your tropical track I feel like just being totally chilled out. Great work - too much details to comment. All is pure electronic. Just to let you know I enjoyed it! Best, Alex

Brilliant work! The guitar at the beginning (at-least I assume that's a guitar) has to be my favourite part but the entire track has a really good vibe going for it. Then we get the piano breakdown and more guitar which is wonderful. Also whenever I hear strings in music, I love it even more.

Really good work here, thanks for sharing.

Awesome track, your guitar intro is superb, love the roughness going into smooth, then the slow build into synth pipes? great guitar bridge and pad 2.12 to 2.42 then another nice build again, good finish. if anything a couple of transitions could have been smoother and the ending though good just wanted to be faded out slightly sweeter, but hey this is a brilliant track and I would gladly play it on my Belter Radio show if you were interested. Great work.
Very best wishes,
15ludwicke replied 29th Dec 2014 - 9 years ago
Hey Larry,
Thanks for the comments! A couple of the transitions in this track were hard to pull off because the intro guitar part was actually played swung and the pan flute part was played straight. So that it made it a little messy, but in the end I believe I was able to work it out.

Also, I would love to have it played on your show! You can contact me at and we can discuss the details.

Thanks for listening!

After moving to the city one sunny day I was telling stories to a friend about living by the sea and started making this track.

Description : I used some new "Anthem" pickups from L.R. Baggs on my Martin acoustic to see how it performed, and it definitely beat my expectations. Captured the sound perfectly as I needed.

Anyhoo, this song is almost a prayer, hence the repetitiveness of the verses. As Christians, we believe that God will one day return and take away every suffering and all evil for good; in that regard, this song is almost one of waiting too. Very simple, with vocal harmonies and whatnot. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did making it. Made in 13 hours.

Someone else wrote the words, I was just inspired to use them. I only added the "Yeah" and "Amen."

Description : This is a track off of one of my EP's I dropped last year. It is based on True events. Sometimes when people finally take a second in life to slow down and breathe in..... The oxygen is deflated and it's too late. Take your time people, because time is what differs a good decision over a bad one. Life is precious!

Description : So a guy buys a nice guitar at a pawn shop but returns it a few days later after waking from a sound sleep to hear it playing by itself. When he tells of his experience he is shocked to learn the owner had actually died while playing it. Is it fantasy or truth? Is the guitar in this track that very same guitar? Its all part of the mystery and fun of Halloween !
EDIT: modified ending to a deeper voice
