Finally get to get back into Photoshop for fun again, so it's time to finish up some old pics.
Very special thanks to Take Kunimoto for teaching me, my classmates and sensei how to play the Shamisen this semester. It was a true honor.
Arigatou Gozaimashita Kunimoto-san
For thoses of you who might be just alittle puzzled, Kunimoto-san is a famous Shamisen player in Japan (traditional stringed Japanese instrument, sounds very similar to a banjo), and attended ETSU this semester per a grant for the Japanese government to study music. He came to ETSU to take a few classes under ETSU's bluegrass major ( no jokes please >.> )
During that time he also took the time to play a few concerts in the area, telling traditional samurai stories, playing Japanese folk songs, and sharing cultural experience. Before you ask, he's EXTREMELY good that it.
So in honor, I made this pic ^_^. Me and Andrea will try to come visit you when we finally get to take a trip to Japan.
The kanji in the pic, "Renshyuu" mean to practice
