Secret of Mana field theme on guitars & flute

I thought there might be some Secret of Mana / game music fans around here who would appreciate this:

My flute skills still have a long way to go, but I'm pretty happy with the synthy-ooh trick I got my electric to do.
I've always liked this piece, and musically it's pretty interesting - it's modal and entirely diatonic (aside from the section shifts up and down a half step) but my ear has a hard time placing the tonal center. If I had to choose I'd say it's D (or at least that's how I ended it), which would put it in the Dorian mode, which is also the mode used for the Lofty Mountains theme. I suspect this game has a lot to do with why I usually feel Dorian as a very sylvan, pensive mood.

This was awesome! I only play piano and oboe. Piano you can use for a variety of video game music, oboe not so much.
