I went through a phase of being enthusiastic about exotic scales a few years ago. This odd little song is based on a Chinese scale, I believe. The melody of this song is five measures long, which I suppose is strange.
I recorded this on a thirteen dollar acoustic guitar that I got at a thrift store. It was a crappy little guitar, and if you have an ear for that sort of thing you'll be able to detect that it isn't tuned very well either.
This song was saved as a wave file, rather than an mp3, so it is disproportionately large and takes a while to load.
