I have a second-handed Chuzao (medium-necked) “Min’yo” shamisen and a Hosozao (thin-necked) 1952 VINTAGE “Nagauta” shamisen that were found at a building demolition site in Hiroshima Prefecture.
(from Yahoo! auction, I’m using both of them while maintaining them).
For now, I’m studying with Kineie Yashichi Ⅵ’s basic instructional book in hand.
At the moment, I’m thinking of joining the Fujimoto school.
But this month, the school in my hometown has closed… I am at a loss.
