Hello!

I am desperately trying to track down the name of this instrumental track. I think its reasonably oldish maybe 70's or 80's but i could be way off. Its all acoustic and instrumental with occasional cymbal/gong crashes throughout. I heard it in a bar and remember it from TV advert in the 80's. I wa sable to figure out the sort of main riff that plays throughout but so far absolutely no luck in being able to identify it. Heres the riff -

I don't think this is the one, but perhaps it'll help ya out 'cos the melody is nearly identical

Actually, I think I know which song you're talking about. A television ad or something comes to mind... only in my case it would probably be a dutch commercial :\

EDIT: woops, seems Killswitch beat me to it...

Na didnt have any lyrics. It was almost a duane eddy sounding kind of affair only with acoustic maybe even a little latin vibe like ennio morricone or something. Appreciate the effort though

So many moons later i finally managed to track down the damn song that has been bugging me for many years. I t was featured on a tennents lager advert back in the 80s. My riff wasnt too far off but I would of been damn impressed if anyone managed to figure it out from that!!
