This is the Cowboy Bebop anime soundtrack with guitar from passionate Japanese harp man Ryuichiro 'Weeping Harp' Senoh.
He is no longer with us but his widow Kikue Senoh has kindly given me permission to make a public course and use his music from the Youtube movie recordings.
She says: "I am the wife of Weeping Harp Senoh. I'm not good at English, it's hard to understand, I'm sorry. Good luck with your copy of Spokey Dokey. Please give a public lesson. Weeping Harp Senoh is also happy." Kikue Senoh

Many people listened to the performances of Ryuichiro Senoh (Weeping Harp Senoh) who died in 2017.
