Guitar Improvisation and Sunrise with Meoto Rocks

Hi there. Here I am staying in my home country, Japan. I've been traveling to many beautiful places during my stay. and the video clip I want to introduce here is located in Mie prefecture. It's around the middle of the mainland where there's a sacred Shinto shrine  called Ise Jingu, people of Japan admire to go there and pray for  Amaterasu-Shinto Sun God. The location in the video is Futamiura, less than 20 minutes drive to Ise Jingu. You will see the two rocks on the right side it's called Meoto-Iwa. the sacred rocks that represent a male and female couple. watching the sunrise is a very sacred ritual for Japanese people. it was about 5:15 in the morning, I saw some people by the rocks viewing the beautiful scenery  and coming to pray for their wishes at this sacred nature. I sat by the ocean, put my iPhone12 with a condenser mic, recorded my guitar improvisation along with the sunrise and ocean. I was just resonating with nature, I could sense the gratitude and beau

Sunnyside Blues / Solo Guitar Improvisation By Osamu Moriyama

A blizzard came in the winter of New York for the first time in a few years. It's been a warm winter for the last several years, so I was wondering how many years it would have been for such a vigorous snowstorm, and the strong winds and side-strike powder snow continued to fall all day long. The weather forecast said so yesterday, so I'm glad I bought some food at the supermarket. Stay home all day and prepare for hibernation So here is the outside view taken from the window of my house during the day. When I looked out for a while, the birds were flying even in such a snowstorm, but it seems that they are rather being blown away. I felt a little sorry. Continuing from the last time, I played blues this time as well. This time, I'm giving out a more bluesy taste and groove at a slower tempo. The Title is Sunnyside Blues​ The area where I live is called Sunnyside, and I'm playing blues right there, so I chose that title. Sunnyside. The place where I lived before was Sun

Sincere Gratitude For Keith Jarrett

  As an improviser, Keith Jarrett has been the musician I was most influenced by since I was a teenager. For the first time, he made me feel the creativity that maximizes the potential and freedom through improvisational music. Keith's improvisational music is full of soul, pouring soul into it, energy pulsation, and dance, where there is no room for human thought to intervene. I wanted to make a world that expresses such a spiritual sound. So I started learning the language of jazz when I was a high school student. I learned jazz for about ten years. All the while, Keith's standard trio was in its bloom, so many of my repertoires were from Keith's repertoire. I learned both Be-Bop and classical languages ​​from this trio. When I was a student at Berklee College of Music, I learned classical music as well. I was lucky enough to spend a sensitive period of teens to 20s absorbing music to the fullest during Keith's improvisational solo and standard trio in its bloom. I ju

Some Kind Of Blues

I observe the world involved in the whirlpool of chaos swirling in light and darkness. Now is the time to play blues. Blues is the power created by black people from the world of duality. There ware Racism, exploitation, oppression cause grief, sadness, suffering, anger, conflict,  but they had hope, love, and joy. Now the era and circumstances are different, but the consciousness of humans in regards to light and darkness may not be so much different. Mind Game Battles of greed, attachment, fear versus love, and joy. Blues is the voices of the soul expression of cry, shout, surrender, prayer. Music Download Website   Patreon Instagram

Life is like flower

  Hi there. Belated Happy New Year!! Recently I've been doing walking exercises as part of my routine daily work. Fresh morning air and sunshine give me energy activation of my whole body and energy field. not only that, it can raise the immune system, autonomic nervous system, and such. and then I do Reiki to run through my whole body and meditate. As I've been doing that work I've been seen the abundance is always inside. so I get more trust in myself with positive energy. So now I'd like to introduce m y latest guitar improvisation track on Youtube. I titled it "Flowers Of Life" as I connect with the life energy of flowers I feel abundance, beauty, preciousness, and love. and life is just all about them. The flower represents that kind of quality and so do we all human beings. I hope you could feel it too. Just started today. I launched a new web platform called Patreon.
