For any sanhsin players (or budding ones) out there, then this book is for you. Fourteen songs with western notation, with TAB beneath that and separately at the back (or front depending on how you open it!) the Okinawan notation. There are picture guides on tuning, changing strings and positioning the bridge, a diagram for where to press the strings, and a guide with western tuning. The writing is in Japanese but the diagrams and notation make it quite understandable for those with a basic knowledge of music and the sanshin. The lyrics are not written in romaji unfortunately, just Japanese hiragana, kanji and katakana. The songs are: Hana, Nada Sousou, Shimanchu nu Takara, Shimauta, Warabigami, Satoukibibatake, Juku nu Haru, Haisai Ojisan, Asadoya Yunta, Tinsagu nu Hana, Bashofu, Endou no Hana, Akata Sundunchi, Yuuna no Hana. There is an accompanying CD with all the same songs for you to listen to or play along to.
