Rock song this time up, play it loud!

The Ghost of Love


The band:

1417:Bass, Electric, RootsRock Ev 100
671:Organ, B3, Background Southern Ev 120
RealDrums: NashvilleEven8^5

I'm playing the guitar parts (three tracks)

Mixed in reaper with plugins from waves and iZotope,
Mastered using Ozone8 and LMC



The Ghost of Love (2018, Chris Spruit)

keep the fire burning
kick some stone for a spark
hold the rope of my boat with one hand
and drag me out of the dark
if you tell me to call the demon
if you tell me to leave the gentle sea
I'll certainly leave
Evil mind
you sell my heart to a ghost of love tonight
of love tonight

just another word of pleasure
and a sweet longing night
in every drop of a precious moment
for the hell of a time
even I know you’re a sweet lie
And I will drown into these eyes
I don't know why
evil mind
you sell my heart to the ghost of love tonight
of love tonight

have a drink
to ease my mind
hit the clock
to slow down time
paint my picture
colourblind

Blue and evil
all the time
I cut the rope
I sell my pride
to the ghost of love tonight

EDIT: Brought up the vocal by 2db as per a suggestion from Roger and also added more reverb. Getting closer I think? Also uploaded to Soundcloud

Hi Dave,

A lovely piece of classic rock.

Great lyrics, great guitar performances, great vocals.

Mix sounds good LOUD on my main monitors. Fabulous kick drum and bass.
Maybe bring the vocals up a shade for my taste - they're so good it's a shame
not to make the most of them.

Loved it.

ROG.

Dave & Chris,

Y'all just keep knockin' it outta the park.

A cool Rock write. Good vocal.

The guitar parts are ALL nice - really nice. Love the little drums figure at 1:54. Followed by an excellent solo - very musical... the guitar work at the transition back to the vocal is super.

Excellent mix. A great listen.

I did play it loud and it had my monitors thumping. What a cool song Dave. Chris’s vocal was excellent. Your guitar work was just excellent as well. Well done

Dave and Chris,

Sounds like 1968 sneaking up on us again! Maybe a little fx on Chris' vocal (a small amount of delay) - just a thought??!!

Guitar parts are excellent - but aren't they always? Of course they are! You guys knocked it out of the park. What a terrific listen! Thanks.

Alan

Had a few listens - great stuff. Liked the ever so tasteful playing and the very professional vocal.
Mix sounded good here.
Lovely work all round.

Dave,
Sounds good on phones - great Hendrix-like guitar hook and Chris as always connects with her vocals.
The guitar layers and organ work well together.
Very very good!

Robert

Great to get feedback from you Roger, you are the king of classic rock on this site IMHO! cool

I brought the vocal up 2db, also added a bit more reverb. Getting close I think. I found doing the mix on this one a bit of a challenge, for me blues is much easier to mix than rock.

Thanks again, I appreciate it!

Really sweet tune. So much good stuff in there. Especially loved that tremolo guitar that hides in the background most of the time.

nice work

Thanks, floyd smile

I've learned a lot from you about mixing and production over the last year or two, as have many others on this site. And it is appreciated!

What a tune! This is an awesome throwback to classic rock. Your vocals, the chords, the groove - everything fits perfectly into place here. The bluesy vibes here drew me in too. A top tier mixing job on this too, to boot.

Great work and thanks for sharing smile
