Japanese local 3 stringed melody maker, the San-shin"BEGIN's Uta San-Shin," is an application for everyone to enjoy easily playing songs with the Okinawan band, BEGIN, on the Okinawan instrument, the San-Shin.
Because the San-Shin is fretless, if the player doesn't press the stings at exactly the right place, beautiful melodies won't emerge from the instrument. The right positions are known as, "Kan-Dokoro." These, "Kan-Dokoro," are shown through a score of Chinese characters known as, "Kun-Kun-Shi," which is displayed on the left side of the app to allow the player to easily master the basics of the game.
Furthermore, in Singing-San-Shin mode, along with the Kan-Dokoro appear original Japanese lyrics, so the player can sing while playing!
Because the tempo and key can be adjusted to the player's level, everyone can eventually master the San-Shin. When the player can stroke at the same speed as the members of BEGIN, they've become a master!
Additionally in the, "Ai no Te," corner, BEGIN's music includes both, "Ai no Te," and, "Yubi-Bue," indispensable parts of Okinawan music. Press, swing, and rock out!
For all lover's of Okinawa, this is an app for anyone to enjoy learning the San-Shin, or just having a great time while drinking with friends.
All sampling was performed by BEGIN.
