Well, this shows again that the price of an instrument doesn't significantly matter. It's the person playing the instrument that's important (ofcourse). For instance, I think that Mark Knopfler would make every guitar out there (provided that it's properly tuned) sound awesome ;)

Really reminds me of David Arkenstone. He did some Celtic/Irish music that I really liked, and also made some of the music for World of Warcraft (I think), and is an amazing composer. Well done, Abbottaerospace!

exactly my thought. I loved that music from him, so.. well I cannot really describe it in English, it was magnificent however. :)

The Rohan music I have written (there are other great pieces from other composers as well) are loosely based on an appropriately titled Irish folk song called 'when I was on horseback'. It's a great melody and I've wanted to use it for Rohan for years.....

Not that I'm in any position to tell you guys how to make this mod (cuz I think you're doing an amazing job so far), but I would absolutely fall 110 % in love with it if the soundtrack had a lot of Celtic-styled music in it. It's one of my most favorite music genres, and would fit so perfectly into the world of Middle Earth. :)

I agree - although there are different cultures in middle earth none of them are particularly celtic (in the story book sense),but I do love celtic music......

So gorgeous! If you get a chance, buy any of the songbird ocarinas and use it. They sound beautiful too!

As strange as this might sound, a suggestion I have would be to make it less... good? If you could have it less involved, because in places it was quite quick and layered, that would be great. The way I understand it, this world is (hopefully) going to be absolutely huge, so unless we just have ambience during adventuring (which I wouldn't exactly be against, to be honest), I would like some slow-paced music to chill out to, like the beginning and ending of this song.

Other than that I love it, it reminds me of playing Stronghold for the first time, killing wolves with an archer. Brilliant work, and I hope you guys get to keep working on this mod, it seems like an enormous undertaking, but it does seem like it's (finally) doing justice to what I imagined first reading the books.
