    Mjark, I'd thought I did too, but I've not been able to track it down.
    This one is similar in lots of ways, but it's not the same

    I have found over the years that I am fairly adept at coming up with stuff that people think they've heard before, but haven't.
    Having said that, I'd like to know if anyone is able to point me to an instance of this actual melody having been recorded previously, because I'd hate to be stating something is original if I actually unknowingly lifted it from somewhere

    It does feel like some tv theme or something, doesn't it

    The melody or A part of " Apache"

    ( I've never recorded , but wrote a surf instrumental called " Run!, Don't, Walk" kind of turned Ventures tune inside out...)

    Apache. It's very close.

    I actually play Apache on the acoustic just as a stand-alone instrumental it's beautiful

    I'm not sure what that would entail.

    I mean, I'm familiar with the F&F franchise, but I don't know how that would translate to music

    Cool!....I hear a number of influences, especially Apache, but not to the point that anyone would cry "plagiarism". ;)
    Cool guitar as well......

    I don t know if my mind is playing tricks on me, but for some reason i hear some notes very, very slightly out of rhythm. Does anyone else feel this ?

    Got to take into account that i can barely play in time.
