This song is "Lappi" by a finnish band Nightwish. It's actually only the first part of the song, but it's the one I like the best. With three guitar tracks and a _recorder_ (as MirnyjOrion corrected :)), this piece gives out some serious ancient and close-to-nature vibes.

I really enjoyed playing the guitar parts, even though I forgot to set the camera to "record" several times (will I ever learn...). I also decided to play one part of the song with a recorder, which I think gave it a nice touch ^^ I have to say, it required a ridiculous amount of concentration to play it, which you can notice from my very serene flute playing position :D I mean come on, if you blow too hard the recorder screams like there's no tomorrow and if you place your fingers even slightly wrong it sounds like you're decapitating a living cat! And that's not all, you also have to time your breathing very carefully. With this I'm trying to say: All respect to capable wind instrument players.

Equipment used:
Guitar - Tanglewood TW28 CLN
Recorder - Some plastic Yamaha that I got 15 years ago from school
Audio interface - M-Audio Firewire Solo
Mic - Shure SM57
Camera - iSight
