Yay part 2! Because was getting pretty long!
It’s cheap, just 3000yen for a normal harmonica… and no complicated fingering to master! So it’s easy to pick up!
Cheap and easy to learn doesn’t mean it lacks depth though!
10 holes, blow or suck… and you can have so many tones and variations…
Aniki starts demonstrating his skills...
They’ll do talking blues today!
He does a demonstration. Basically it’s like free talk + harmonica blowing? But you try to rhythm.
Really… it’s not difficult to make some noise with the harmonica.
You either blow air through the hole, or you draw air through the hole.
Then you can blow or suck air through all the holes… left and right. Or right and left. Anyway you want hahaha XD
Well it’s easy to make some noise with the harmonica… Trust me I did that a lot as a kid. Making music though, is another matter XD
Talking blues! Make some noise on the blues harp aka harmonica… put in some lyrics!
Aniki gets Nino to think of some lyrics.
But Arashi is too harmonious for him to think about stuff he wants to yell at the other members! XD
Oh well. Topic change then!
We’ll start with my pace Jun!
What’s with Jun’s face! XD
Aiba pumps his fists into the air in response XD
Next Aiba responds to Jun! They’ll make it like a conversation exchange.
Aiba comes up with a line immediately. But just that one line! Hahahaha! Aniki was like… "what??? just one line???” Hahahaha
They try and brainstorm…
Sou desu ne… Sou dana. Eventually Aiba settled with sou darou!
In any case, there’s no such thing…? Huh?
Nino: Zen Q&A!
Aiba is really cute! The way he stomps his feet to the side!!! XD
Either case… they seem to be having loads of fun! XD
Aiba trying his best to copy Aniki’s movements!
What can I say? But that the two are really, really close today XD
Sho is called to go next. He’s stumped on how to continue from the earlier phrases!
Aniki wants one more phrase no matter what!
In the end aniki suggested something anyway hahaha!
Sho can’t think of anything so he just goes with whatever the aniki says hahaha! But really… my mind would be blank if it was me too!
Empty empty empty! Blank blank blank!
They look to Nino for help.
And look at what our genius song writer came up with hahahaha! Just gotta love this line!
With that line, Aniki is satisfied! talking blues time!
Hehehe! It’s just fun watching them chorus together. Sho speaking, Arashi echoing, and Aniki playing the harmonica.
They congratulated each other for the job well done! XD
Nino complains that his feet is gonna break from all that stamping. Hahaha!
Finally! The last lesson!
Aniki’s goal is to write the song lyrics, and make a song with just the D, A, and G chords they learnt earlier.
Aniki believes that anyone can write lyrics! The most important thing is your thoughts, your feelings. How you strongly feel about something.
Basically writing different lines, but following the same train of thought. So the theme of the day is ‘loving someone’! A love song!
He asks Arashi to think of the person they like, and asks which of them likes girls with long hair… No one raises their hands!
Nino likes girls with short hair! As for why…
N: The person I like.
N: Recently I saw her in a drama and her hair has become short…
Her hair was long… but he likes her short hair too. Well, he’s a loyal fanboy after all. XD We all know who he’s talking about right? XD
Hahaha! Yappari Yuko da ne? XD
Aniki suddenly realised… Asking idols about their love life is a taboo! XD
Well. Thankfully our boys have Nino’s crush to talk about! XD
He just realised that he asked the taboo question! XD
Aniki starts his lecture on the burden of idols!
Our boys are besides themselves with laughter!
He starts going on and on about it… XD
Wahahhaha! Suddenly! In the middle of class! That was so random!
He starts talking about long hair girls with Jun.
Listen up Jun fans! Keep your hair long and let it flutter in the wind! Because Jun likes it! XD
He throws the ball to alba next.
Aiba fans remember that! If you see Aiba, say that to him! XD (Concert uchiwas maybe? hahaha!)
Nino suggests a line for the hook.
Sho is lost in his own thoughts! Hahaha!
And with that, they are done! 3 lines and a song!
And here’s the lyrics!
And then it’s time to sing!
I swear he gave Ohno this role because of his long nails! He really is kind!
And yay! Singing time! That’s the end of the show and the review… well I’ll just have some random shots of them playing the guitar! XD
All sing together now!
Ohno just… looks so lost throughout :P
The audience sings along too XD
Sho looks really pleased!
Lastly, Aniki has an announcement to make. All night live concert in front of Mount Fuji! Sugoi ne! With 100k people! Arashi is surprised!
Woah he’s turning 59! Sure doesn’t look it!
It doesn’t bother him though, growing old. And he suddenly starts dancing…!
They showed a cut of Aniki singing kanpai all out at the end…
With Arashi playing the guitar in the chorus. Darn, I wished they showed us the whole song… but it’s too long for the show ne? T.T
I really love that song! Have it on my phone already XD
He starts playing the blues harp.
And that’s it! The end of the show! Hope you liked the review! Whee finally finished it!!!! Yay!!!!
