    I heard Jarre's arrangement of an old Chinese song and looked up the instruments used:

    Mesmerizing. The song is dominated by the sound of the guzheng, a Chinese zither. The mournful erhu shows up in the final part of the song.

    I also found a vocal version the song:

    The zither sounds beautiful. A similar instrument used to be popular in Germany.

    I really like the mournful sound of the ehru:


    Discovering new music is always exciting. ^^

    That shows me how "poor" the Hevy/Hard Rock Music Scene was in the 80s here in Austria.:(
    I never head from such Bands like them.The only Source in the 80´s was every Month the Magazine "Metal Hammer".:yay:
    Thank you for Sharing,my Metal Friend.:)

    Thanks for posting that. I like it. I wish I could make tunes like that. I'll get there, maybe, someday.
    I gave up on soundcloud because the only likes I ever got were from playlist generating bots.

    That it was made by "our" local VinsCool makes it even, well, cooler. ;-)

    Not just vinscool, I made some of them too actually :3
    And you will surely get there! You don't need any special music theory or anything to make songs like that, in fact none of us had any of that at the time x3 It's more about understanding how the chip works. Of course, if you could do both, even better results might emerge....

    Hey, that's pretty neat! Hats off to you two. And thanks for the support my friend. :3

    I listen to many artists who started out by playing around with instruments and sounds until they found things that work.

    It yields interesting results that people with music education maybe wouldn't think of. Not saying that musical training is bad or anything, but I think it kinda locks you into a schema and you're less open to experimentation then.

    I was thinking of doing the same. I don't even care if people will hate it, I do it for my own enjoyment.

    Maybe folk tunes will have an influence on my approach, but even that could be interesting. Ah, I can't wait till I finally get a keyboard to play with.

    (Back to Fruity Loops, I guess)
