I also have a Shamisen https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc6/268793_1883539246569_2953761_n.jpg

How hard is the Shamisen to play? I was thinking of getting some lessons when I was in Osaka but didn’t have time.

If you already play guitar you can manage, if you don’t it’s tough. Especially if you want to play correctly. Down plucking is fine, but it’s really tough to flat pick with the bachi. I mean monumentally difficult. The bachi or plectrum is like 6 inches long and 5 inches wide.

Wow. I can’t wait to hear it! That’s an amazing story behind the instrument too, I can totally imagine a movie called “the curse of the Shakuhachi”....
