Min’yō (民謡)

I had requested a few months ago of my teacher to learn Yoru no Uta (Song of the Night).  I’ve always loved this song and have tried to self-teach it.  However, the notation was just different enough that I was getting stuck in spots.  My teacher, Jon, was kind enough to spend the time going through the material.  Biggest challenge, (which always in the case) is I’m never low enough (meri) on my tsu’s.

We’ve now been going through several other Min’yo pieces and it’s been really enjoyable.  Especially enjoying Komoro Uta & Hanagasa Odori.
