You MUST watch these in order
this one first, which you will probably know...

and then you must watch this one

and you must listen to it all!!!

So, tell me the difference?!?;):retard:

If you want to know what the jangly instrument is, it's a hammered Dulcimer (and soon I will have one ;-)
It's an astonishing instrument, a bit like a zither (Remember The Third Man theme/Harry Lime) but better!

A larger version was used to make the Persuaders theme (a Cymbaline)
A Cymbaline is like a grand piano size, in fact it was the forerunner of the modern piano- only the modern piano had hammers driven by keys!

Here is someone that really knows how to play one

Here is an Electric one

and this, it's amazing- this guy is on something

more below (spoiler)

The second song above is the original made by Lalo Schifrin an Argetinian Jewish composer for the Mission Impossible TV series in the 60's!!!

Apologies, but I just love the sound that instrument makes!!!
Thre is another version, bit like an elongated guitar, doesn't sound as good though!:boonie:

Hmm, I might have to give both of those a play on this fridays show, with a bit of an explanation :biggrinthumb:
