Cody has shown me several finger-stretching techniques. They are helping with my finger flexibility immensely. Since I’m having troubles managing Santa Monica, I’ve chosen to focus on another song as well. I’ve chosen the song Binks’ Sake by Kohei Tanaka. This song is a very well known song in the One Piece anime, which is presently the largest and most popular show in Japan. I am a huge fan of this show, and I deeply respect Eiichiro Oda, One Piece’s creator. This song is one of the many well-recognized theme songs within the show, so I will be much more motivated to learn it. In the anime, the song is sung by a skeleton character based off of Slash from Guns ‘n Roses.
More information on Binks’ Sake can be found here. Its a pleasant, catchy song in both English and Japanese versions! I’ll be using these tabs to learn to play it.
