  1. Greetings everyone. First, I gotta say, this site is very cool and thanks to all the
    I’ve found a lot of helpful advice.
    Anyway, I’m originally from Australia, but now living in Nagoya, Japan. I’m working there and playing in an original band on weekends. I’ve been playing bass for about 20 years, and played in quite a few original and covers bands. I’ve done everything from metal, hard rock, blues, funk, acid jazz and everything else. My favourite is playing rock, in its many forms.
    There is a lot of music going on over here, Japan is the second biggest market after the U.S. There are also a lot of good music shops and a big selection of stuff available. Equipment is cheaper here than in Australia, but not as cheap as the U.S. except for possibly Fender Japan and other Japanese brands.
    Anyway, this site rocks, cheers everyone!

    Welcome!
    It's been a dream of mine to goto Japan. Since I was 6.

    A bit off topic, but can you tell me...

    1) The Keyboards. Is it true that you need to press like..2 buttons at once to make one symbol? (Maybe include some pics?)

    2) Do you see this fourm in Japanese? Or...English? (You bring from Australia)


    Thanks, and welcome!
