(ok i just found this tab in some site)(i didnt write all of this crap)
This is a retabbing of a tab file done by Edwin Tan. Kudos to
Edwin for doing the ground work on this lovely and classic
piece. However, I have retabbed it to take into account the
timing (Classical Japanese music for the koto is in 2/4 time).
Also I have made several corrections:
1) The "tremolo" with the index finger piece was tabbed incorrectly.
This has been tabbed in the correct time and number of strokes.
2) A minor correction at the end of the main theme (first part)
has been done.
3) The 1st variation, I feel was incorrect. The theme notes sound
as sustained notes, not hammer-offs as was originally tabbed.
The new tabbing allows for the notes to be sustained. However,
the hammering version is "easier" to play so I include the
first 4 measures of it at the end as an alternate version.
I have also corrected for several missing notes or incorrect
note choices.
4) The last two measures of the 2nd variation (harmonic octaves) were
incorrect and have been corrected.
5) The 3rd variation (tremolo study) also had several errors which
have been corrected.

The point is to get the "koto" sound out of the


done by playing very close to the bridge of the
sharp sound, and close to the neck or even over
soft sound. It helps to hear the version played
but I am hoping with the timing here, those who
to the recording can enjoy this piece.
