    New York NY
    Difficulty Level:
  • January 19, 2011 Very dissapointed

    This arrangement, if it could be named as such, was done very poorly. Just so you have an example, Aka tonbo(reddragonflies) was not showing any chords. Furthermore in order to fill in the blank on the left hand the melody (and this song was in SINGLE notes) passes from...

    the register of the right to the left leaving the right hand empty. You might as well do it from hearing, even a begginer will make more then what they did. be aware!

    The music is interesting and nice. She liked the translations of the Japanese words and especially liked "Haru Go Kita". July 7th Star Festival telling information about festival and songs was good. The music is pleasant and easy to play. The art work is attractive and the folk customs and...

    information about songs was appreciated.
