Liner Notes (translated from the original Japanese)
I have always had a passion for Irish Fiddles. Technically, fiddles are violins but the name is only used in European traditional musics. Well, I finally decided to go and learn it. Now, I'm under a Canadian teacher, Jim Edigar, along with eight other students.
Most of the eight have never played a violin; some haven't even touched an instrument. The sound, of course, is pretty awful. Still, I don't see any one not enjoying the class. Everyone is ringing out crocked tones joyfully.
I think that is the most important thing in music.
- People who began to hate music because of their grades in music class.
- People who are afraid of being criticized, due to their pride.
- People who stop playing in bands after employment thinking that bands are childish.
It seems that music in Japan is only reserved for a small minority. That's why music as a culture doesn't originate in this land. Musics are characteristics of any culture, which every culture has. It should never be enforced in schools (every student in Japan is enforced to learn music including reading staff, playing recorders, singing, etc.) or be "graded." There's no need to become a professional, nor any need to become better. If one doing music is happy, isn't that good enough? I get so happy looking at my buddies playing off-pitch violins with me, smiling. There's even a man who started violin at 38. Why don't you try an instrument, too?
Well, let me introduce Shirō Hamaguchi finally. There's no need to question his talents if you listen to the songs, but I am disappointed that those songs don't tell his great personality. I wish to present you even more fantastic sound with him in the future. Good job to everybody in IMAGINE, including Mr. Hamaguchi. I am grateful from the bottom of my heart.
