New: Ever Changing Wallpaper Gallery Presenting The Best in Arts

Another Woodwind Instrument from the creators of iDuduk, iShvee, iZurna, and iBlul. This instrument simply is a testament to the elegance of traditional Japanese culture.

The Shakuhachi (Japanese: (尺八 (しゃくはち) pronounced [ɕakɯhatɕi]). Made from the root of the bamboo, its aesthetic is organic and simple. Hidden inside this unrefined form, It is carefully crafted with mastery. The sound of Shakuhachi is said to imitate the full range of natural life on earth.

The Shakuhachi is an end-blown flute. It's tuned to a pentatonic (5-note) scale. By different fingerings half and quarter holings, by controlling the angle of the mouthpiece against the lip, all twelve tones of the chromatic scale can be produced. The mouthpiece consists of an angled blowing edge whose design is unique. By changing the angle of the mouthpiece against the lip, the player controls the pitch. A delicate change of intonation occurs - a swelling or bending of notes characteristic of the traditional music. The timbre of the instrument is soothing in its low tones, although it is capable of producing loud and breathy tones in the middle and upper registers.

Another great one ; p

I bought all 3 apps. The intro music load screen of the birds screen, should be an option on the duet. It would make it even more fun.

iShaku is a wonderful App and it's so artistic! It sounds like a real Japanese Shakuhachi and it's also informative. There is so much information about Japan and the instrument itself. I find it easy to use. 3 dollars well spent for me. Thank you guys! Sincerely -Yoshi
