I’m a huge fan of your videos, Kyle, and was excited to see you put this web-resource together - it is a HUGE benefit to us Shamisen Enthusiasts! I have been obsessed with the Shamisen since I first heard it and now that I know it’s not an infatuation I have been desperately seeking to purchase one.
I figured that because I live in a city in Canada’s west coast with a hugh Japanese influence it would be easy… not so, alas! My contacts and networking has turned up nothing north of Seattle.
So, I was wondering if anyone frequenting these forums was aware of any resources I may not have discovered north of the border - my Japanese is rusty and if I visit again now I won’t come back for a few months at least!
Thanks in advance and I look forward to being a part of the growing community!
