Hello everyone in Bachido!
What a super cool neat community
I am interested in learning the shamisen as my main stringed instrument. I love its warm sound that reminds me of a bubbling river!
I wonder if it will be good for folk music. I am afraid I will put energy into playing the shamisen and it won’t complement the American Folk genre.
I am thinking primarily of Joni Mitchell, early in her career before she started leaning towards pop music.
I see shamisen playing rock music and it sounds great! Do you think shamisen will sound good playing America’s folk music or awkward? If you have any videos of playing the shamisen to folk music please upload them here, i’d love to see!
Thanks for reading, looking forward to your input!
