asoviva34’s cover of Jack Johnson’s “Flake”


One way to get our attention is to send us a video of your playing a sanshin (check) and a very big plus is to play a song from an artist we’re big fans of here (check). So without further ado, here’s asoviva34 playing his sanshin arrangement of Jack Johnson’s “Flake.”

Interestingly enough, asoviva34’s homepage is www.asobi-sanshin.com which sells sanshin that can be shipped to anywhere in the world! Uh-huh that’s what we’re talkin’ about — way to go guys!

  1. @tn: Thank you for leaving a comment. I’d love to hear about your experience with the store and share it on the site.

  2. Since this is my first sanshin, I don’t really have much to say in terms of quality but it feels and sounds good. The purchase itself went smoothly. I paid on the website and received the sanshin on my doorstep 2 weeks later. It was fairly affordable at $350USD for a middle of the line quality, fabric sanshin. I liked this one area of the site where they have videos of them playing a song or two on every sanshin model they sell. It really goes to show that each sanshin has its individual sound. I recommend them but then again I don’t have other experiences to compare to so take that as you will!

  3. @tn: Thank you for sharing your experience with http://www.asobi-sanshin.com. I, too, like the area of the site with video clips of the sanshin they sell. I think this is a great way for sanshin groups outside of Okinawa (or Japan) to buy sanshin and sanshin accessories. Chibariyo with your sanshin playing! 🙂
