This one has been an ongoing project for 2 more than years...and, frankly, I'm stuck. I've added bits and pieces, as well as taken some out. I wanted to make it longer, but can't figure out how to make the track progress further. If anyone has ideas for it, I'm ALL ears! Otherwise, I hope you enjoy it for what it is!

After being taught how to survive in the wild, a young man sets out into the Amazon for the first time. His mentor smiles softly, as he disappears into the unknown, hoping they will meet again soon.

It's a nice sound that could really go in a number of directions. The first thing that came to my head was a little guitar solo reprieve, where all the other instruments lighten up and the percussion is a little more spacious.

Or maybe you could make the mood even more tense by stacking some harder percussion (bass drum, taikos, etc.) and some dramatic brass with a little dissonance.

Honestly though, I was getting more of a desert vibe from this than a rainforest. The dry guitar and the flute melody (which could be interpreted as a ney, a popular Middle Eastern instrument) kind of give an impression that I don't think you're really going for. I believe the percussion is the key essential to distinguishing a piece as "jungle" music. I would look more into bongos, wave drums, rainmakers, vibraslaps, and maracas to establish a foundation for a sort of rainforesty theme. Hope I provided some help, and good luck on your track!

Wow! Thank you for your input, JoshuaHughes! It's very much appreciated, and I will definitely take it into consideration as I work on this more. The flute is actually the Indian Bansuri, so you were almost spot-on...and it actually makes sense that you pictured more of a desert theme...I didn't think about that at the time. LOL Maybe I will make this a 'desert' theme, then! You've just given a plethora of ideas to work with, and it helps tons. Thanks again!
