Came Back from Tokyo and the US!

September 16, 2017

Hello everyone!

I'm guitarist "Tomo"fumi Shimoda.


I came back to Shanghai last night.

Here I'm going to share some of my photos from Tokyo and Kansas!


September 10th

I had my first stage in Tokyo🗼


I played for about two hours with guitartst Misturu Araya.

I was a liitle nervous, but had a good time🎸


September 12th

I flew to the US with another guitarst Mitsuru Araya🇺🇸


 Arrived! The posters were everywere in Winfield, Kansas.


I enjoyed BBQ and open mic with other participants.


and I met Brian Henke there!



September 13th

Competition began! I was No. 23.


The first competition in my life! 

As participants and audiances cannot speak anything during the competition, the stage was oddly quiet. I was quite nervous...



40 guitarists came to the contest from all over the world.

and  2017 Finger Style Guitar champions are...


1st place: Christie Lenee

2nd place: Travis Bowman

3rd place: Matt Thomas


Their musics were very creative and atractive🎶

Three of them are wellknown professional guitarists in the US who have won the prize in different competitions and been popular in Youtube.


I couldn't get a place for this time, but I will keep trying untill I will be chosen as a champion🏆!


I learned a lot from the expericence. 

I will be back, Winfield!🎸🇺🇸
