Just curious what do you mean by instrumentation? I guess for the more eastern countries, using appropriate local ethnic instruments (like a koto for japan) would be good, but what about for me doing America? Really, I just want to know do I have to include instruments that are actually American? To elaborate, technically most classical instruments (violins, trumpets, etc.) are from various European countries, and the only truly "American" instruments that I can think of are electric guitars, and even then that's technically just an enhancement from classical guitars of Spanish countries. Really, there is no completely American instrument, so if I use a classical orchestra, is that considered to be bad instrumentation, because I have nothing that actually came from the US?
