Song Production Information
sampling masters MEGA
Huh? How is this "samurai"? Well, don't think about that too much, please.
All at once there were lots of notes, then they violently ... violently? Uhh ... so I wrote another song I can't play, huh ... and so I wrote in the barrage of shamisen even while thinking that. I wonder how many of the end notes someone can actually hit ... I'd like to see someone play this, if I could. It's like a fast rain, though you wouldn't say that, so more like a downpour, I guess. Well, play it well, like a samurai. (Whaaaa?)
Video Production Information
He's like something you'd see in Nikkou Edo, old Uzumaki movies produced by Toei, or Oedo Onsen Monogatari ... casually dressed, holding a thin sword, and sporting a top knot, cutting through a scene full of people with a bold dash! It's not something that would happen in real life, but if it did, don't you think this would be the BGM for it!? ... that's how "1st Samurai" feels to me.
Even though his clothing is in disarray, he's cool-faced to the end, casting a glance to the stylish girl beside him. ... well, that's the sort of attitude you've got to have when you play this sort of difficult song, anyway. I hope you'll try to play it that way.
