I’ve just uploaded a new version of Shamisen Composer.
There are lots of improvement, but it’s not perfect yet. Feel free to comment your experiences.
But hey, that’s not all!
I present to you, the Shamisen Scale Viewer!
With this little thing you can create scales and try out different combinations of scales and the standard tunings, effectively showing you where you can play the scale. This picture is a way of helping you to map your mind to the sao when playing. It will work like a pattern that you remember when improvising.
Also, you can select parts of the chord to highlight where you can play the chords on the shamisen. It is a helpful way when writing music for the shamisen that is physically possible.
The plan is to add a more beginner friendly version of this tool later where you get assistance in selecting chords without knowing anything about music theory.
And please tell me if the site goes down.
