Hi all. I have been quietly enjoying my Catherine Thompson made shamisen. I absolutely love it. Interestingly I have learned that I prefer to play finger style, and to play slow, quiet, mournful music.
Initially I had it tuned CEA, so that I could use my ukulele knowledge. But lately I have been playing it tuned be BEB as this seems like a more traditional tuning.
I was wondering if anyone has used dulcimer tab. I may have asked this already, but it seems like a no-brainer. Just curious. Most of what I find myself drawn to playing is old time music… including a very depressing version of Angeline the baker
