Cherry Blossom Time

Ok! I've finally managed to video myself playing the song! Thanks to my dad's Panasonic 6 Mega Pixels digital camera! (Which we bought as his recent birthday present). Digital cameras are really useful i guess, though i'm not really a camera sorta guy.

So here's the song Cherry Blossom Time for ya'll. Performed on a CGX-171SCF Yamaha Classical plug-in, my wife =P I'll put up the other video shortly. Enjoy!

Also, as requested by some users, here's an instructional on how to play this song. Hope you can understand what I'm saying :P

question:
did you improvise this song a little? it seems like you're hitting notes that you didn't tab out

it's a great song.. i wish it was longer though :(

Graham Choo said...

Sometimes I may have some mistakes in my tabbing. If you can point out which parts are not in congruence, that'd be great. I'll check into those areas and change accordingly if they're errors. Thanks! :)

Brett said...

Hey thanks for the tab, I spent the last few days trying to learn it. Do you play any other Kotaro Oshio songs? I was thinking specifically of "Red Shoes Dance." It's a great song, and there are a bunch of youtube videos of it, but I've never been able to find a tab

Graham Choo said...

Hey brett, glad that the tabs have helped you. Red Shoes Dance by Kotaro Oshio is already under my list of songs to learn. However, I've been preoccupied with chording out songs, so I haven't been able to put up any instrumental videos lately. Will get down to it when all the administrative stuff is done :)

This is pure awesomeness.
Can I be greedy and request Christmas Rose by oshio kotaro?
I have the tuning and stuff so far but I'm terrible at figuring out the tabs.

Happy chinese new year
