Hi I was just wondering if anyone could give me some songs with examples of "spooky" guitar work. I am not necessarily talking about songs that are "heavy" or "dark." Just something that you would consider "haunting", or "eerie." For myself, the only mainstream song I can think of is the opening part to "Betterman", very smooth and hollow sounding guitar, kind of eerie in a way...
MOnsters by Matchbook Romance? I'd say it's fairly eerie. Plus (honestly) it's a pretty cool song.
My sig? Nice.
Opeth - Harvest

At this point I'd be more surprised if you found me a Christian children's entertainer that didn't sodomize and eat kids.
Pretty much everything on De-Loused in the Comatorium.


Notice that every sound on this except for the drums is a guitar.

Actually, any Mars Volta works:


And Maggot Brain


Also, fuck Darkside, this is what you need:

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Anything they do counts as haunting.

The Beatles "Help" has had a haunting effect on me and still gives me the same feeling in my chest as it did when I was 4 years old.

"Fire on High"by ELO, "One of Thes Days" by Pink Floyd have been haunting and exciting to me since I was little as well, like Star Wars for my ears.
Help? Haunting? Really?

from 0.40 onward, the guitar is heavily processed though. And the song very amazing.
And what is more, there's been a bloody purple nose and some bloody purple clothes that were messing up the lobby floor. It's just apartment house rules so all you 'partment fools remember : one man's ceiling is another man's floor.
