Bamboo flute is a Japanese traditional woodwind instrument that is called Shakuhachi in Japanese.
You may have heard tones of Shakuhachi when you listened to the Eastern image music.
In order to play Shakuhachi, you should touch four finger holes (five finger holes for professional mode). Auto-breath mode, without blowing into the microphone, is also installed.
Three prerecorded tunes can be played to follow the guide as tutorial. In addition, three other tunes can be recorded.
There are three modes of playing iShakuhachi.
