Hi, Bachido! I need some help here.
I live in New York. The so-called “Great American Melting Pot.” Even with all this culture, I can’t seem to find a store that sells sheet music or instrument parts anywhere!
I went to the city today with some friends. I went to Chinatown and Koreatown (I wanted to go to Little Tokyo, but it wasn’t close enough.) I went into a lot of stores, and at every one I asked the same question: Do you have anything on the shamisen? Do you know where I can find something like that?
All answers turned up no. I’m out of options. I’m not hard pressed to find a store, it’s not like my life’s work or something. I just want to put it out into the shamisen world before I stop looking.
So, the question is: Does anyone know of a store in New York City (anywhere, seriously) that sells shamisen, shamisen parts, sheet music, or oriental music in general? Any help would be appreciated greatly. Thank you!
