The Shamisen

So i had a friend of mine show me the Yoshida Brothers. Super cool. The Shamisen is like the Japanese banjo and the Yoshida brothers perform this jam like its a mash up dinner stew of japense folk banjo, mixed with metal speed style riffs and a pinch of gang vocals for added spice all wrapped in a brotherly connection of dual Shamisens..... Fantastic.

Mo' Meta Blues

Finished reading ?uestloves memoir "Mo' Meta Blues: The World According to Questlove."


I recommend checking it out. Not only is it a peek into The Roots and his life but it has a HUGE list of amazing bands and songs to learn about.
