We made it to DAY 10. Thank you for keeping up with these posts. 20 more to go, so stay tuned. In the meantime, if you want to help support my work, please consider purchasing a copy of Domo ArigaDIE!!! It helps.
Today, is an attack, a sword fight. A duel. Today, you will learn to feel what it’s like to be hacked and destroyed by the most powerful sword of all. THE SHAMISEN.
God of Shamisen does it right, does it straight to the skull with the intensity of a kaiju-sized tsunami. So, it’s Saturday and it’s a beautiful day. Enjoy the tunes and mind the splatter. It stains.
Fun fact: I took one official shamisen lesson, but the teacher made us kneel for the entire time. After the lesson, I couldn’t walk, so I crawled over to her, limp and helpless. The middle school students around me tried not to laugh. It hurt. No more lessons.
