Otsu?

Does anybody know of honkyoku which use only otsu? I can think of two, Kyorei (of course) and Garyoken Takeshirabe. Are there any other obscure ones?

I ask because Mujitsu made me a gigantic 3.3 which can only play the low octave in tune because the bore dimensions are so huge.

Re: Otsu?

Brian...

Looks like the piece Hifumi-no-shirabe is all Otsu. However, I'm not sure about this piece, since I don't have it. I'm reading its' liner notes. Now, I have a version of Choshi that's titled, "Choshi or Shirabe", which confuses me. In these liner notes, it has Chosi and Shirabe as two different songs, albeit both student pieces. I only have the Stan Richardson version, mentioned above.

Is this odd?

The sheet music for Hifumi-no-Shirabe by Tokuyama Takashi is available from Monty at shakuhachi.com.

It is all in Otsu.
