I suppose the Greek sound is the one that sounds like Portuguese guitar (I don't know if they used a
This is similar to what I am talking about, no wonder it brings tears to my eyes..
This is a comment on youtube:
A little background on the story: Helme is the lover of a girl named Rosa, who was forced to marry José Santos. During her husband's travels,
the two lovers meet at her house. One night Santos returns early from a trip, knocks on the door, kicks it down and brutally murders Helme and
Rosa. The song is Rosa's lament just before the tragedy.
The Portuguese guitar is a 12 strings guitar, so it's natural that it sounds similar to other 12 strings guitars.
I don't know how other 12 strings guitars are played (I don't play any instrument, only door bells ), but in the Portuguese guitar only one of

In the world before Monkey Primal chaos reigned,
Heaven sought order, but the Phoenix can fly only when its feathers are grown.
The four worlds formed again and yet again,
As endless aeons wheeled and passed.
Time and the pure essences of Heaven,
The moistures of the Earth,
And the powers of the Sun and the Moon
All worked upon a certain rock - old as Creation,
And it became magically fertile.
That first egg was named Thought,
Tathagata Buddha, the Father Buddha, Said
'With our thoughts we make the world'
Elemental forces caused the egg to hatch,
from it then came a Stone Monkey.
The nature of Monkey was irrepressable!
Equal parts compelling, frustrating, intriguing and addicting.....mind-teasing, puzzling, and ----

THIS is the opening. This is all you know, going in...to a computer game world unlike any other. No real jeopardy, no real time limits, no
"fancy" keyboard finger-tapping required.
Worlds that only exist magically, because they are written and "linking books" that allow you to travel between the
worlds........navigate amongst them, unravel the clues, find "Ghen" and capture him....
More than a decade, now, since I last entered this game....late Clinton era (happier times...)......
