Tsugaru Shin Jonkara Bushi by Kyle Abbott (http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=fiddlefella#p/u/31/_SvkFglRoD4)
Kyle Abbott was kindly enough to borrow one of the songs for this shamisen, I've been following his youtube channel for a while so I thought it was a good idea to do it. He built his own Tsugaru Shamisen and wrote a book about it! : The Shamisen of Japan: http://shamisenofjapan.com/

The rest of the song were taken from Tsugaru Shamisen by Takahashi Chikuzan a traditional shamisen player.
