"Kasik Havasi" has a beat that's half way between cowboy gallop and traditional Turkish. Much like early country and rock instros, with hand claps and a gutty guitar. Very cool!

This is a slow piece with a lovely melody and sad-romantic melody. Influences here include the ventures and the Shadows, but it's like neither. Warm and engaging, with great whammy chords. Quite a nice track!
