I’m an artist/designer and my partner is a cabinet maker so I have some aces up my sleeve for some serious DIY and look forward to a new project. I play guitar and a little bass and have customized a few guitars.
I found out about shamisen through old samurai movies. Stumbled onto Kyle’s videos on youtube. I bought his book, strings, and koma a few years ago. Just before joining this forum I bought mahogany,rosewood and calf skin to start building. It’s time to get shami wit it.
