Scales qinqin qinqin / sanshin sanshin

scales running on two unusual instruments - the Okinawan sanshin
and the Chinese qinqin (the latter is a new instrument with
seven equidistant frets to the octave). i'm running the Japanese
in and various Chinese scales which are also mixed with
Cambodian scales and at times something sounding like old-time
banjo, too much confusion and too little accuracy perhaps on my
part. i'm running everything to the limits of my ability, using
constantly changing intervals played and replayed on one and
another string... good learning here in Brooklyn, NY... good
music the result...
