I always wanted to learn how to play the shamisen but I just recently started looking online for more information. I’m so happy communities like this one exist and that it’s possible to learn with all the great videos online!
Looking over the posts very quickly, I wonder if anyone can give me a hand with the below?
- How much will it cost me (average) to have everything I need to actually start playing?
- It is worth looking online on Japanese site to buy shamisen?
- Anything I should watch out for?
I’m not going to lie, buying an instrument (that I have never played before) is a little stressful. It’s a lot of money and I’m not ever sure I’ll like it or if I’ll be able to play it. Any comments on this?
Thanks for all the help!
