Yeah, I like CB, too.
Shakuhachi, and now koto, yum. You can't stop here, Dallas, so what's next? Shamisen? Biwa?
I don't know shamisen, but I can't find any biwa music at all. I would love a biwa CD.
Sure? Usually people seem to magically disappear when I play a biwa CD.
Now that I look up shamisen I know what it is. I don't like it as much as I like the biwa that I've heard.

This next clip from the movie Kwaidan (Hoichi the earless) is the first time I really was exposed to the biwa. Clip won't embed, but you can watch it here.
More biwa. This kid in the second video seems pretty good.
