Hi! I'm Rama from Indonesia

Hi everyone! My name is Rama from Indonesia. It’s my first time posting here. Started about 2 years ago, i’m into Rock, Pop, Blues , and Funk guitar playing and i would like to learn more about them. My music taste mainly revolves around japanese Pop and Rock. I’m also into classic Rock like Pink Floyd and The Beatles.

Hello Rama

Welcome to the community!

I love to broaden my horizon and I lack knowledge of the Japanese music scene. The only thing I discovered through anime soundtracks is Yugo Kanno, but he is more soundtrack than songs. But his later JoJo work really was absolutely my alley and would love to know if there are some similar style fusion maniacs in the music scene maybe.

Would you mind dropping some recommendations of cool japanese rock and pop to check out? Maybe a good playlist you can recommend?
Can we look forward to hearing you maybe even play us some?

In any case, as always good ongoing journey with the 6-String :melting_face:

Hi Rama, welcome to the community. I am also interested in examples of Japanese pop and rock. I do know that the Beatles were popular in Japan early on, because my book, The Beatles Complete Scores, was transcribed by 4 Japanese musicians.

Hi there! if you like Rock and some Jazz you might want to check bands like Casiopea. Their genre are called Jazz Fusion and i personally think that they are very good! especially if you love virtuous guitar playing. if you like some Pop-ish and funky stuff you might want to check out Japanese City Pop from artists like Tatsuro Yamashita, Mariya Takeuchi, and Masayoshi Takanaka. And for your taste i think you might want to check out Persona 5 ost because as far as i know Yugo Kanno music is a fusion between Jazz and Rock. Cheers!

Hi Rama, welcome. When listening Japanese Pop and Rock listen to what makes their sound characteristic and distinct from western Pop and Rock, so when playing either one you can give each one their distinctive flavour. Have fun.
