Anyone have ideas on some haunting and "spooky" scales/modes or even just riffs?
Led Zep "Dazed and Confused"
Peter Gabriel "Don't Give Up"
Elton John - Madman Across The Water (the song on the album of the same name).
Miles Davis - Sketches of Spain
I'm not sure if you would call it spooky, but Don't Stop Believing by Journey.
most things by tom waits
Gary Jules' cover of Tears For Fear's Mad World
John Coltrane's Naima
Maurice Ravel's Pavane for a Dead Princess
ghost of tom joad - rage against the machines
Great pensive, melodic line, and a great double-stops workout!
"Pictures of Home" Deep Purple
& D melodic/harmonic minor...
Dido's Lament from Dido and Aenaeus by Henry Purcell.
Guitarist I played with the other night showed me the Tri-tone scale, which produces some pretty evil dreary sounding stuff like you would find in a vampire movie.
it goes in 1 1/2 step intervals I - iii - v - VII (G - A# - C# -E)
not spooky, but check out augustus pablo
That's a diminished seventh arpeggio, not scale. Tritone scale? Sheesh, you can't trust anything gui****s tell you.
Yeah I didn't know what to call it, since if I kept stacking minor 3rds it would just repeat itself an octave higher, and since he called it a scale. I haven't gotten too deep into augmented and diminished chords theory wise, I know they exist and how to form them, didn't know the fingerings either (as you can clearly see). While we are on the topic, what scale would I pair with this arpeggio?
...It does sound eerie though.
A Remark You Made - Weather Report.
woo! thanks guys keep them coming. i got all labor day to woodshed these ideas
These are more haunting in the dark sense of a melody that will drag you down in an introspective kind of way...
"Watch Me Bleed", Tears For Fears, from The Hurting
"Under The Milky Way", The Church, from Starfish
"The Killing Moon", Echo and The Bunnymen, from Songs to Learn and Sing
"Fade Into You", Mazzy Star, from So Tonight That I might See
Too many Cure songs to mention.
Choking Victim - Living the laws, not that your probably into Ska Punk/Metal, but it's one of the coolest sinister bass lines ever
RATM - settle for nothing...
the most haunted bass line and guitar sounds ever for me...
