What made me most interested, was that she was trying not to look at her left fingers while trying to keep her eyes on the music notes.
A Jiuta Shamisen player came to learn Tsagaru Shamisen in my class.
In Tsugar Shamisen, it is acceptable to look at the left fingers.
Perhaps, this difference is associated with Jiuta which originated from Koto music.
Koto musicians do not look at their hands when they play since it was formerly played by blind musicians.
Tsugaru Shamisen was also played by blind musicians, but the technique was too fast, and the position jump is quite often, therefore it was easier to play while looking at your left finger.
In addition, when playing fast tunes it is difficult to flip pages because you consistently use both hands to change the page at a moment's notice.
In notable players, Shibata Shiblings look at their left fingers quite often, but Yamanaka Nobuto can play with their eyes closed.

So, it depend on the player whether they wish to look at their left fingers


It's the same Shamisen, but different technique. That's interesting!

In tsugaru shamisen, we can look at left fingers.

I thinks this difference originated from
Jiuta is related to Koto music,
In Koto music, they are supposed not to look at your hands
because it was formerly played by blind musicians.

Tsugaru Shamisen was also played by blind musicians,
but the technique is too fast, and position jump is quite often,
so it's easier to play with looking at your left finger,

so you can look at left fingers. I think.

In addition ,by playing fast tunes, you can't flip pages
because you use both hands consistently and
change the pages in a moment.

In notable players,
Shibata Shiblings look at their left fingers so much,
but Yamanaka Nobuto san play with closing his eyes.
So it depend on the player, but still you can look at left fingers.


Same shamisen, different idea, that's interesting!

地歌三味線の方が教室に体験に来ました。

面白かったのは 左手を見ないように、楽譜をしっかり見るようにされていたことでした。

津軽三味線では左手を見てもいいのですが、

この違いは音楽のジャンルの違いによるものかなと思っています。

地歌三味線は箏の音楽とリンクしているので、できるだけ手元を見ないように楽譜を見るように、指導されます。

これは昔箏は目の不自由な方が弾いていたからだと説明されますが、

津軽三味線も目の不自由な方が弾いていたのですが、何故見ていいのかと考えますと、

津軽三味線は非常に速く弾くのと、ポジションの跳躍が多いため、左手を見た方が正確に弾けるという理由からだと思っています。

後フレーズが早いので楽譜もすぐページが変わってしまい、
まためくる暇も無いことも関係しているかもしれません。

有名奏者でも
柴田三兄妹さんたちはかなりしっかり見ますが、
山中信人さんのようにあえて目をつぶって弾く方もおり

一概には言えませんが、見てもいい、という事には変わりません。

同じ三味線でも考え方が違うのが面白いですね。
