Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I still only got until Yuan Sha's amazing performance (visually too), but here are two entries in two comments.

First -- guitar bands were ascribed to me, so here is a rather special use of the guitar: beyond the usual stuff with the bow, watch out from 06:15 in:

Sigur Rós: Svefn-g-englar, concert version (11:12)

The same folk song with a guitar and a singer (plus a hundred thousand throats)....

Freddie Mercury: Tavaszi szél vizet áraszt, Queen Live in Budapest 1986 (02:01)

...and with an organ plus a few thousand throats:

Xavér Varnus: Tavaszi szél vizet áraszt, live in the Budapest Synagogue (01:49)

Thanks for pointing me to Sigur Ros. Excellent music and some beautiful videos.

And BTW, since I see your Queen singing Hungarian, I always wondered if German bands still sound German when singing English.

Who would have noticed?

still sound German when singing English.

I hear German intonation in the refrain of this Tote Hosen song, but I'm curious too what native English speakers hear.

Slight German, but I pick up more a measure of californian metal band intonation in his voice.

Here's another guitar sound--acoustic/electric, sorta blues but with raised fourths at (e.g.) 00:42-00:45.  It's a jam outside someone's house I think.  02:17
