Just for your fun. :P 8)
In the past, some blind men learned to play Shamisen
(Japanese guitar) to make a living in Japan.
This man was blind,too.
These men passed from one house to the next to get some money.
He says (it was hard to play in front of the people who say
(noisy)(fxxk you). I practiced hard, wanting them to listen to me)

music starts 1:32

Deeply moving Japanese music footage of the old-wise Blind Guitarist/Shamisen he was totally trailblazing and his Website "chikuzan" quite intriqueing. As for the younger musicians, their music footage didn't come through. Oh, well that's alright the Ancient-Japanese Trailblazer took the prize anyway. smile.
