Om Namah Shivaya

Om Namah Shivaya



Liner Notes: 

One of the most popular Sanskrit mantras - it is powerful and healing. It has been used in many, many devotional songs - why not one more? Mainly a D chord throughout, with a few journeys through C.
And this one gets me to 50 - but I also want to do 50 solo demos so I have at least three more coming, I hope.



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

nice well done in getting to 50
it reminds me of the Beatles song
"across the universe"
Jai Guru De Va Om

I don't know why I was expecting this to be slower and melancholy. I like the upbeat, finger-snapping tempo to this one, Chip... and congrats on hitting 50!

Yeah! I love how upbeat and fun this is. This would be a fun one at a rowdy kirtan.
The crisp, percussive guitar is great.

Like Maddie said, definitely an interesting tempo choice. Was not what I was expecting, so that's always good.
Would be good for a walking meditation. I'm at the Oregon coast and this would be great for a walk down the beach. Smile

I enjoy the lightness of this. Very pretty. Nice guitar playing!

Ah! I was hoping to find this sort of lightheartedness that I often get from your songs--- sort of a playful journey--- an improvisation through this mantra--- I hear something just a bit Stephen Stills... like part of Suite: Judy Blue Eyes ... love it!
