Just woke up - had this strange dream

Yeah, they keep forgetting to hit the "end" button on their drum machine.

I don't know a lot about the shamisen, but it's apparent that it must be limited in it's play and leave very little room for creativity.


Yoshida brothers have done it better.....

Electronica meets banjo. I'm digging this.

 
Except it is not a banjo.  It is a Shamisen.
Sugoi subarashii yo!

I agree with that!

Thanks, Bill and Rebecca, for including "electronic" music in with everything else here, and not just dismising it like so many as just some talentless kids letting their computers and record players make music for them. It's the same ignorant argument that so many made in the late sixties/early seventies that using electronic effects and synthesisers wasn't valid music. It was "cheating". BS! a person still has to manipulate the aperatus to make the music, weather the instrument is a digital interface, or a wooden box with strings on it.
 

dwongraded from 2 to 1 because of the false finish just an era or millenium ago.  
Jan Hammer via Tokyo? One bonus point for creative sound, one penalty point for length. Hmmm...not more than a 5. Just "there."
Insupportable!!!
:beat: If only they had SEAL to sing with this song. "CRAZY....."
There are a lot ways to pick this song apart. But I still kind of like it.

For some reason, this song reminds me of the music that used to play on those ninja fighting games, on the old 8-bit nintendo. I expect a disembodied voice to go, "Ready. FIGHT!" :war:
Haha. Definately Mortal Kombat+Shinobi!

:headache.gif: my ears, my ears!!!
I actually liked this... about 5 minutes ago when it had only been going for about 3 minutes. Does it end?

Please make it stop!!!! :cry:
for some reason this made me want to un-trade in my black firebird and pretend i'm knight rider again. :motor:
the integration of a traditional instrument aside, there is really nothing interesting about this piece.
:lol: :lol: Laughably bad! :lol: :lol:
Really cool...well done, thanks for playing this :clap:
:bounce:
:frustrated: :??: :evil:
Make it stop! :cry:

Good music wakarimaska? Apparently not! :??: Noise Des! Looks like even the Japanese can make bad 80's sounding music!
Ditto. :frustrated: :frustrated:

weak, boring, derivative. i hate this kind of stuff.
Wow -- this was the first song playing when I tuned in this morning, and it really caught my attention. Never heard it before, but I like it much! I\'m surprised more people haven\'t commented on it. Please play more...
Very nice stuff.
Play more shamisen, but maybe not this ...
Second hearing and the shamasin? is moving. Is it the new sitar?
Good energy!
