SHAMISEN

26K, 450 x 500, 1985. Watercolor on crinkly paper, about 14x17" by Chris Wayan


I do play the shamisen, though it's just a sound patch on my keyboard. I modified it so you have to pluck the keys, not press them--it affects the whole way I play, much less pianistic, more guitar-like. In fact, I tend to play the blues on it.

The characters at the top could be translated "blue notes"...
