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

Why would he return it? I would just let it play itself all the time, like a dead mall pianist. Plus the ghost sounds like he's in good spirits... :)

Ghostly greetings.

Do you have a hollow body guitar that you filled with Jim Hendrix's ashes? Sure sounds like it on this track featuring some very tasty playing with a beautiful feel and touch.

It's a bit too chilled out, sensual and relaxing to be a proper Halloween track but I'll let you off. That Thriller one you did a few years ago was much more appropriate for Halloween.

2:10 those runs are my favourite playing in the track. Plus the awesome 2:28 bend.

Jimi sounds like a little child right at the end. I thought his ghost voice would be a lot lower and more humorous.

Big congrats!

Do I have a hollow body guitar with Jimi Hendrix's ashes?
That'd be a bit morbid but having his ghost in my guitar would be cool!! I'd just settle for one of his guitars. But hey you made a good point in your thoughts on the ending. So I re-recorded my voice and went in the opposite direction with the pitch. Thanks for the comments bro, you are only one of few that has ever got me to edit my tracks.

sounds like he was sad at the passing of his former owner but knew he had to move on althougth reluctent to do so :( the guitar i mean
Neomorpheus
Neomorpheus replied 29th Oct 2019 - 4 years ago
It does sound a bit lamenting. So eggs, I had to think about your comment and if I understand you correctly, your actually suggesting that its not the ghost of the former owner in my guitar, but instead the guitar itself has taken on a life of its own?

Interesting. That theory is not quite as creepy. Wonder if I could sell that to my wife? Ha HA !!

Thanks for the comments man.

I really could enjoy the listen to this fine slow hand dreamy one. But i could not get the ghost thing :) cause it is much to "friendly and heavenly" but it is also far away from angels.
So it must be just real good deep human stuff.
Really well played!

stay tuned

I guess as far as ghosts are concerned, I'm way more acceptable of the friendly and heavenly sort than the opposite type. So that's the idea with the peaceful and benign vibes I tried to present.

Thanks for the listen and comment Joe.

Sounds like a haunted Telecaster, those are the best i hear(from those voices in my head)ha!

Cool tone, nice reverb, chilled out feeling track till the very end....scary! Well played!

Hey Wayne nice to have you drop in. You know I never really much liked Telecasters. I played a few over the years but since they were always a favorite of the country players I pretty much wouldn't play one. In recent years I come to realize my stupidity. They are great guitars and I especially love the feel of them. It's possible I could have been haunted by the Telecaster all those years and didnt realize it!

Rigor Mortis is one of the bands that really got me into metal. Very sad hearing of his passing but at least he was doing what he loved. We have no control over what becomes of our material possessions when we go. As guitarist oud guitars mean the world to us, to others they just be a hunk of wood and metal. In my time away from here I've become very involved in homemade/handmade instruments and accessories like picks and slide and handwound pickups and have to say they definitely have more mojo than factory made/production items. Your title is right on :D Some do play themselves, were just the medium that makes it happen.

My wife is Asian (Vietnamese) and had to endure some horrific things as a child and survivor of the war in Vietnam. She has told me of things she witnessed that made my skin crawl. She very much believes in ghosts. She also has a strong belief that certain peoples personal possessions can become their link to this world when they die. She wont let me buy items from a pawn shop any more.

Cool story. Rigor Mortis guitarist Mike Scaccia died on stage while playing his guitar, maybe it's his! Steve doesn't believe ghosts are real, he should come to work with me LOL! :D Bear nailed it, nice clean soulful playing, always a pleasure Neo. Thanks for getting the annual Haloween thread going, coming up quick! I was trying to play with the Boneshaker yesterday when I got called into work...

Neomorpheus replied 10th Oct 2019 - 4 years ago
OMG I remember that Burt ! I had seen him with Ministry at Lollapalooza and had been to the Rail Club in Fort Worth many times but not the night he died. Yeah I remember hearing he collapsed on stage and died shortly after. I doubt that one of his guitars would be at a Pawn shop, but you never know! I think Steve is just goofing on us with a play on words. Of course ghosts aren't real. Reality is term associated with life. They are un-real.

Neomorpheus replied 10th Oct 2019 - 4 years ago
Glad you like the slow hand and good to see your comment cru. I was trying a couple of things in a totally different direction and wasn't liking it. So I decided to slow things down and dropped out most of the rhythm and the slow hand emerged. Its funny how these things happen sometimes. Oh and ghosts aren't real only to those who haven't yet seen one. Ha ha, Happy Halloween bro !

Ah, Neo, as usual your work on this one is a master's class in playing, composing, and production. Seriously brother, it's like listening to Mayer or maybe Jonny Lang or one of the other greats. They always say the tones in the hands and in this case, they are so right. Beautifully performed. Thanks for sharing. I hope all is well.

Happy Halloween.

Wow that's quite a compliment Bear, I certainly appreciate the kind words man. Tone is always that Holy Grail we are constantly striving for. I was purposely thinned it out a bit more than I normally use in this, to give some what of a twang. But still wanted it to sound good. I actually use two distinct guitar tracks in this with entirely different set ups.

Neomorpheus
Neomorpheus replied 9th Oct 2019 - 4 years ago
I initially wanted a slow blues 8 bar rhythm progression but it was too full, didn't sound empty or eerie enough. So I basically dropped most of the rhythm guitar and just played some notes and flavored them up with various effects and some string techniques - slides, bends, pinches, pull-offs etc. I actually tried working in some rockabilly styling ala- Brian Setzer in here. Hes another great guitarist I admire a lot. I guess it does have a slight jazzy feel to it in spots though. Thanks for the comment man, much appreciated.

Description : Sounds of the sea and trippy acidy washes with a cool beat and some live acoustic guitar. Written in Cubase with live guitar and keys etc. The sound of the sea and birds was recorded on the beach where I used to live. 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 : A progressive journey incorporating deep ambient chillout, swing jazz, hip hop, d'n'b, trance and a slight touch of acid with a thousand ninjas battling in space. Features a great deal of my lead slide resonator guitar playing. Also a whole load of synths, programmed acoustic drum kits and manipulated drum loops, big basslines, regular electric guitar, vocoded guitar parts and bass guitar (distorted right at the end). If you like deep chill, far out soaring beauty, fat beats and 170 BPM uplifting slide trance controlled mayhem, you might just get into this. In my heaven there is an endless supply of honey mangoes (an exquisite beauty of the fruit world) and even more slide guitar. A 1,000-year-long version of this track plays there on a loop (long enough not to get bored of it) but here I offer you the Earthly 11 min version. You must be very good to be accepted into my heaven to hear the full thousand year version so best start now. It may be heaven's main theme tune but it's not above criticism so feel free to let me know what you think of it. Maybe you prefer the soundtrack in hell. I hear it's pretty badass...
