I don't think they're guitars.   Thursday, May 27, 2004 (1:10 a.m.) 

Everyone keeps talking about the "traveling theme" and saying that the instrument playing underneath is a classical guitar, but i think this is probably wrong. For those of you taht actually play music, or are composers yourslef like me, it honestly sounds more like either a mandolin, which it might be, or even a sitar. It sounds more like a sitar then anything, and you can tell from the slight twang that it gets out of it. Please Christian, I respect you as a reviewer, but learn something about music itself before trying to talk about the orchestration of a piece. So for the record, I say it's more then likely a sitar, or slight chance, a mandolin. If anyone knows where we can find out exactly what it was, then we can settle this finally.

Hi,
A friend of mine plays sitar and is quite sure there is a sitar on this track but with a strange sound (maybe modified by computer...)
Bye.
