Where to find Choshi music

I was wondering if anyone can point me to the music notation for Choshi?  Thanks,

Brian

Cho Shi is similar to, but different from Hon Shirabe. Monty Levenson (shakuhachi.com) has notation by Takashi Tokuyama that includes Choshi. Also Vol 1 of the Annals of the International Shakuhachi Society has notation for Choshi.

I compared my notations of Choshi from Kinya Sogawa and Keisuki Zenyogi to Alcvin's Honshirabe. It is nearly identical. If I am correct, Alcvin's notation is from the Yokoyama school and shows musical interpretation. The notations from Kinya and Zenyogi San are the bare bones. I also have a version from Ralph Samuelson but I don't know who the author is. It is also bare bones and nearly identical to Kinya's and Zenyogi's.

I would love to hear from shakuhachi scholars on the origins of Choshi.

Namaste, Perry

I'm sorry for side-tracking the thread like this. From your message I gather that different schools have different ways of writing notation for the same piece so that some put in more details whereas others focus on simply showing the very basic melody. If this is correct, would you mind telling me (over e-mail, perhaps, so we don't side-track this thread any more) which schools tend to have more bare-bones notation and if such notation is being sold anywhere. I would like to get some notes for pieces that only have the essentials on them.

Thank you in advance.

Takashi Tokuyama's notation is very simple and he also has a beginner's instruction book and CD. You can get this through www.shakuhachi.com
