Long time lurker first time poster here, I have been really interested in the Shamisen for a while now. It started with my Japanese Sensei showing and explaining the instrument to us in class and its grown from there. Unfortunately even after all my research and looking I am still unsure of what to look and go for.
I was wondering if there were any community members located in the South of England who might be willing to maybe meet up and show/explain a few things to me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I’m located in and around the Southampton/Portsmouth area.
