Okey, this the story.
I really admire this man, Nobuyuki Hirakura (49). He remake some of L’Arc song, and he play it in guitar, accoustic. It’s so beautifull.. really touching, makes me want to replay it over and over. It’s really mean something to me, knowing that Hirakura-san (who’s one of the best guitaris in Japan) playing L’Arc song, sugoi! It means that he also love L’Arc ne~
I really want to know more ’bout him. But unfortunatelly.. I get nothing! Shimata. I’ve been googleing, but it’s seems like he’s not famous enough in world web. Well, maybe coz I search in english (I don’t know any other language! sory). There’s couple article in Japan, Spain, and any other language, but I don’t understand, at all =P
But i found something, yokata. Ja, a brief summary bout Hirakura-san that i found (www.homadream.com):
