OVERVIEW

The rich, historical traditional of Japanese music explained and interpreted for your guitar.

With Guitar Atlas: Japan you can experience the island nation's rich and mysterious culture through its music. To most of us, Japan is an exotic and faraway land. When we see images of Shinto shrines, pagodas, geishas, and Kabuki actors in face paint, our imaginations are immediately captured. However, there is a lot of beautiful music made there too. In addition to arrangements of classic folk tunes such as "Sakura" and "Edo Komori-uta," Guitar Atlas: Japan teaches about Japanese scales, modes, and tunings, and traditional instruments such as the shamisen, koto, shakuhachi. Learn guitar techniques to emulate the sounds of these Japanese musical instruments.

Discover the fascinating world of Kabuki music, including a style of shamisen playing called ozatsuma. Readers will also learn about the Bon odori, or bon dances, held during the summer festival of Bon.

Guitar Atlas: Japan is an exciting introduction to Japanese music offering new and interesting music to add to your repertoire, and teaches techniques, theory, and traditions that will enhance your playing and enrich your spirit. A CD demonstrating all examples and compositions is included.
