After finding about the three stringed Japanese instrument, I've been into the sounds it makes. The Shamisen is truly something else, and so here's a song I wrote combining western modern rock influences with eastern traditional tastes. Enjoy!

Great song. This made me really think of a battle somehow. It starts out in a peacefull village and slowly enemy Ninja's invade and the village Samurai are holding them off in an epic defense.

Great song, epic feeling and gave it the score it deserves! Made it my second favorite here on Newgrounds!

Yoshida Bros Fan eh???

good stuff bro wat program did u used to make the shamisen sound???

smilingpig67 responds:

I used Garageband with an instrument plug in I found on the web that resembled a shamisen.

Very nice

I like the electric guitar added in. This is inspired from.. The Yoshida Brothers I'm gonna guess? I hear a lot of their riffs in here. I like it!

smilingpig67 responds:

Lol yeah, Yoshida Brothers RISING. They're excellent, good observation! :)
