Haven’t covered a Gregory Brothers tune in a while, but I’ve always really liked this songification. Powerful but peaceful prose set to mighty moderate melodies by the one and only SchmoYOho.
Tsugaru shamisen is a three-stringed fretless lute from northern Japan! I studied under Kevin Kmetz (Youtube username: shamikami) and Fukushi Toyoaki in Japan (he does not have a Youtube account, as far as I know). We did not study Gregory Brothers melodies during our lessons, though. That came later.
