Having recently completed his PHD dissertation for the subject of Tsugaru Shamisen, Gerry McGoldrick takes a California vacation and visits Bachido HQ!

In this special guest episode of Bachi on the Horn, Gerry gives fascinating insight about the judging process at Tsugaru Shamisen national tournaments, where not all judges actually have shamisen experience. Why is this? Listen and find out!

Mike Penny and I released a satirical video called ‘The Bachi’ which humorously addresses this interesting phenomenon at tournaments.
