Hello all, Would anyone have the notation to Esashi Oiwake.... I would love to learn it.. thanks, theo joyal ENYLIZ@aol.com
I am also looking for that piece; anyone will to share? I've been listening to the version on Koga's lesson cd, and am having trouble following it. It could just be those crazy rolls of notes Would notes like that be individually written into the notation or is a practiced sort of standard ornamentation?

In the notation that I have, the rolls are written as a squiggly line with two numbers (in kanji) next to it, indicating which finger holes are involved in the roll. Thus:
Ri (squiggle) 4 5
start on Ri, then roll (Hi, Ri, Chi, Ri, Hi, Ri, Chi, Ri... ) for as long as you like (usually 2 or 3 repeats.)
Though the notation doesn't cover all the ornamentation by any means.
