Is it only me who thinks that Shamisen has horrible tone? It sounds like an unplugged electric guitar and the plectrum click is annoying as hell

The thing he is using to pick the shamisen looks like a windshield ice scraper.

+1 Same Exact Thing I Thought

Tell me why I had to be a powerslave
I dont wanna die, Im a god, why cant I live on?
When the life giver dies, all around is laid to waste.
And in my last hour,
Im a slave to the power of death

Did anyone else think he sounded like Jimmy Page on Eastern instruments?

I thought at the start of the Vs Taiko video he sounded like John Butler, but more Eastern. But then JB does use eastern and slide instruments a fair amount, which might be what made me think of it.

The tap dance one was still my fav, the groove was awesome.
I still think that extra drummer did alot. Also, Ima guna take a wild guess and say they're only tuned in C?

yea dude, you're the only one, well its an opinion so whatever, but thats the traditional tone, and when played in in traditional japanese music, it sounds awesome. you cant get the same feel as you would with a normal guitar, try imagining that video if the dude used a gibson les paul....just doesnt feel right. might look cool though.
so thats just what i think.

Someone needs to create an Ultimate-Shamisen site. I am so learning this instrument as soon as I can get my hands on this one.

Interesting. It turns out that there are people on the forum who play an upright bass. I'll make a note of that.

*makes note*

*puts note on wall*

*stares at note for a minute*

*sits back down and resumes doing what I was doing*

That Shamisen blues sounds really cool, since it still maintains that eerie tone.

I'd like to try one of those.

i wanted one, hit up wikipedia, then found out the preffered covering for the soundbox is cat skin, closely followed by dog.
