I’m new to this forum and new to playing shamisen
I have a question about tuning.
I bought a Nagauta shamisen and after a lot of reading I started to play the crash course video - Kuroishi Yosare Bushi - (measure 1) on this website.
I have tuned my shamisen with an electronic tuner (Musedo T-60C) on Chromatic mode to C-G-C, however it sounds completely different than the sound in the video. It sounds like my thin (3rd) string is too low.
I could try to tune it by ear but it somehow bothers me as I don’t want it to be off-tone…
Could it be that my sound is different because it’s a nagauta shamisen and in the video a tsugaru shamisen is used?
Thank you in advance
