When something gets requested here enough times, we’ll do our best to get it to you. So here it is, our first video tutorial on tuning your sanshin. Be sure to check out our “Tuning Your Sanshin” page for more info. I’ll also have it up for download — at a better quality than streaming it on the web — soon so keep an eye on this entry for an update.
Background on the filming of the video:
This is the first video that I’ve ever taken of myself so I hope to get better as we release more of these (yes, we plan to do more). I’ll have to apologize for the low volume on the dialogue as this was filmed using my MacBook’s built-in iSight camera and microphone. If there’s a good amount of response for this first one, I’ll think about picking up a video camera (or better, borrowing someone’s) or buying an external mic (more likely). Editing was done in iMovie 7.
((Update 1)) The video is available for download over at Revver. Please leave me a comment if you check it out there. Thanks!
