Hello from Italy


#1

Hi all.
let me introduce myself to the community.
I’m from Italy and I just signed up here in Bachido community.
Since a couple of months I own a chuzao shamisen and I’m trying to learn to play it.
I’ve no former knowledge of music instruments playing and in these early months I’m really enjoying a lot in playing and in discovering this world, (till now) unknown to me.
Happy New Year to everybody.

Francesco

Welcome! :wave: And Happy New Year! :partying_face:

May I ask what you’re currently working on?


#3

Sure you can. I suppose you’re asking about my work on shamisen.
Using some tablatures on the Bachido’s book and some other tablature I found online, the first songs I’m learning are some simple minyo songs. I suppose the name of this kind of tablatures is “bunkafu”. I’d like to improve technique.

Indeed. :slightly_smiling_face:

So would we all. :grin: Is there a particular technique you’re working on right now, or just technique in general?
