I’m an absolute beginner shamisen lover and learner… I have a nice little Hosozao shamisen and I have a fantastic japanese teacher, who teaches me on my instrument’s own style.
I love it very much, but I know that finally (when I will be ready) I will buy a Tsugaru shamisen.
Do you think I will have to learn everything from the beginning when I will change the instrument?
…or is it possible to learn the basics on this, and then “just” change to the style and the technique of the Tsugaru…?
Thanks in advance for your kind help.
