FreeStyle Sanshin Play Set.  We want to make a beautiful instrument For current and future generations Crossing all musical borders.   For people to play and sing  The songs they love.
Kunkunshi. Chord Details for Nada Sousou. Sanshin chord charts.

The freedom to play anything. Up until now, music notation for the sanshin has always used Chinese characters called kunkunshi - a system which is unfamiliar to many, and may turn people away from playing the sanshin. Don't be scared, the Sanshin is easy to play!

To solve this problem, we give you a simple way to play any song using guitar TAB or classical sheet music notation. We've added labels to the neck(sou) of the sanshin to indicate frets, giving you 13 semi-tones to play with. And we've also made a great guide showing you all the chord shapes, along with some fun songs to get you started.

With the songs of the world at your disposal, try exploring different genres of music with your sanshin.
