Item Number: CF.YAS112

Larry Clark combines elements of Japanese folk music with the music of the American hoedown, and the result is a party! The main tune is pentatonic, but the background parts are pure hoedown. Japanese Hoedown sounds cool and different, but familiar at the same time. There is even an open section for improvisation that can be played using a D pentatonic scale, and an example solo is provided as well.
