Probably 90% of the music in my library incorporates guitar in some way. The rest of it is mostly jazz or electronic.
Recommend me music without any guitar in it. The more obscure the instrumentation, the better. I want marimbas, recorders, tamboura, tribal drumming, whatever you can throw at me.
Pic related, I want stuff like this.

Why don't you stop treating this as a spoonfeeding board, its a DISCUSSION board, if you can't have a discussion, fuck off, we aren't here to fill up your library for you.
/mu/ is at its absolute nadir. Amongst all the Taylor Swift threads, worship of Weezer and Slipknot, non-music related threads, endless circlejerking over the same 20 bands, you choose this thread to shitpost in? Kill yourselves, all of you.
>to shitpost in
This isn't a fucking spoonfeeding board. If you want to have a discussion about traditional Chinese music, the artists, history, notable artists, instruments etc, lets do it, but you can't can you, you haven't got a fucking clue, you just want people to spoonfeed you album links to DL.
That's funny, I have that album too :)
And I bought an Erhu because of it.
I'll recommend you these albums
You have too much time on your hands
Sorry man, I kind of skimmed over your comment. It does look like a good album, but noise wasn't really what I was looking for when I started the thread. I'll check it out anyway!
I can't really remember, but I've always been into Asian shit.
Philosophy, nature, music and movies.
I guess watching old Kung-Fu movies which had the happy festival erhu music was what got me into it.
/mu/, how do you wear a metal shirt without looking gay or nerdy and actually look fashionable and badass?
>fashionable and badass
the only people who will think you look either of those things are other autistic metal fans
if that's the only group of people you care about looking cool to then i don't know, grimace constantly or something

The idea that most people who request something as 'spoonfeeding' is cancer. There's a real joy to making lists and the whole idea of a scene is about that love of exchanging mixtapes and coming up with recommendations for others. As a music fan it should be a JOY to recommend. This is why /mu/ will never get the same credibility as music magazines or academia. The people here are less about sharing music and more about building their mini music-empires and touting some false flimsy philosophy of 'self-determined' individually chosen library that can be found. Discussion IS spoonfeeding you fuckface; its just spoonfeeding with a back and forth.
Fucking 95% of the discussion around here is not even about meaningful exchange in music. Even a one way exchange would be worth something but most of it is just perpetuating a cult of negative listening. They don't say 'you should listen to this' but they say 'you should not listen to this' and don't even recommend any album in return that would make up for that 'negative'. The term 'circlejerking' is actually also as harmful because it denies the album recommended but then it enforces this idea that they should already be 'in the know' about other albums. No recommendations are done. There's no such thing as music 'discussion' without recommendations unless you're talking about a 'theory-based' level (like analysis of structure or history of the scene), which there isn't as well anyway. I would ask for 100 'your personal 10/10 album' posts than 100 'stop spoonfeeding, your taste sucks, meme-shit' posts.
Phong Thuyết Nguyễn - From Rice Paddies and Temple Yards: Traditional Music of Vietnam
Four Huun Huur Tu records: 60 Horses in My Herd, The Orphan's Lament, Best - Live and More Live.
They often use guitar in one of their songs though, song named Kongurei.
You can't do that for specific instruments, though. I've been trying to find good marimba music and RYM is not very helpful for that at all. Marimba is used in many styles, and most of those styles don't always include marimba in their instrumentation.
Thanks heaps. Man, I can see what.cd really is worth getting. I've been putting off doing the interview because I figured it couldn't be that much better than what's available on Soulseek, but wow. Cheers.
They have a really fantastic library of music, but it's sorta hard to seed there. I can't offer you a invite because I'm still in the Member class. It's definitely worth the effort for the interview.
Sounds like you need some more experimental music. Try:
Oneohtrix Point Never
>Chrome Country from R+7
You probably have already heard of this guy, but shit, it's good stuff.
>Music for Commercials
This incorporates a lot of traditional Japanese and Chinese music elements into an experimental electronic sound.
Ambient and experimental music with a wide array of insturmentation and textures. Creates a very mysterious and grim atmosphere. Almost reminds me of Silent Hill in a way, not through its musical structure but the tones and textures used and the atmosphere it creates.
