Reskin for Gidayu exploration



I have a nagauta style shamisen that I need to have reskinned. I haven’t played in some years but as I pick up the instrument again I am interested in exploring gidayu music styles to accompany my partner who is working with puppets in the bunraku style.

I plan send in my dao to reskin both sides with black Hibiki. Would you recommend selecting nagauta style or tsugaru style to support potentially harder playing and more experimental techniques?

Thanks for you your help,
