Return to the Kirkyard

in ntopaz •  3 months ago 

This is the second of two (so far) songs inspired by Greyfriar`s Kirkyard, a supposedly very haunted cemetery in Scotland.
The wailing guitar solo functions as a siren, simultaneously warning you away and informing you that it may already be too late. Then the church bell tolls...

Assuming you make it past the intro, the fancy guitar work that happens later in the song really isnt all that fancy. Its just what happens when you have no idea how to play a real guitar and use it like any other synth, rapidly switching between three different arpeggios. I discovered that sound by rapidly turning knobs in my DAW trying to decide which arp pattern to use. Answer: All Three! I dont know if its even possible to make that rapid sequence of notes on a real guitar, but if it is Id sure like to see it!

Id also like to see Greyfriars Kirkyard. From a distance.

Excellent work, as always in your gloomy style, sounds alarming and very impressive!
