    Default Musical Question - Identify this style

    Could someone identify the kind of music this is, 45 seconds into this Ace Combat trailer?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHj_Ik4AzxE

    Is it like tango or something?

    That is some classic guitar solo, sounding very Hispanic. I place my bet on flamenco, 'cause towards the later periods of the trailer it evolves into the true energeticness of flamenco. However depending how it sounds similar to Al Di Meola, it can be jazz, fusion, tango whatever spice is ready to be blended.

    Be sure to check Al Di Meola. You'll definitely like his music. Taste Mediterranean Sundance track for an introduction.

    Did anyone else find that trailer unintentionally hilarious? Solo Wing Pixie?! The Belkan war?!

    Definitely flamenco, what with the melodical phrases, the twelve-eighth rhythm, the crescendo, the castagnettes.

    Flamenco. See Adrian's post why. I love Flamenco, when played well, one guitar sounds like a whole band.
