I made a solo 7-string guitar arrangement of the melancholy jangle pop tune Darling by the band Real Estate.

When you live in a country where something called a 'melting pot' falls into play, you sometimes don't detect marked differences in sounds and influenced within the larger meld of rock music (maybe it's a little clearer for pop music - I'm not sure)... In any case, here is one track created at the foothills of Ukraine's Carpathian mountains... You may hear a distinct Carpathian whistle and even gamma in this song. I think it gives the song a distinct and tasteful 'ethnic' flavour. This is 'BFD' by Ummagma and I hope you will enjoy it.
