Shes cool playing guitar and she always got the most difficult part for guitar in scandal... so apparently she is scandal best guitarist - to be fair though i guess you just shouldnt tax haruna to play those tougher notes since she have a fair share of work to do already as main vocal....

Mami is pretty good although she does do some err during lives... but overall she is cool and cute and thats great~ I dont usually see many good female guitarist around so mami is good...

Stereopony lead vocal does play good guitar though...

Anyway in short - Mami is more than good enough - I hope scandal will have even more challenging notes for mami to play so that she can shine more during lives /^^

My sentiments exactly. :)) They only had one good song from way back. Then afterwards it was all, bleh...

Anyway. Going back (and sorry for that)... I read something from this [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] shared on another [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] which I found to be very interesting and somewhat relevant. And I thought I'd share it with you here:

--So where do you think the “essence” of SCANDAL lies?

R: It’s in being fearless. We formed when we had just started playing instruments; when we were in dance and vocal school together we just decided to form a band even though we didn’t know anything about that kind of thing, and even when we didn’t get the best reception, we never thought of saying “We can’t do this.” That we’re a band that does all kinds of songs has been a positive thing for us lately.

[...]

T: For us, it’s normal. We’re not a band that has great technique, but as far as that goes we can really show the crowd a good time. People have come and told us that they’ve formed SCANDAL cover bands, and it makes us happy that they want to be similar to us.


We gotta love them for that. Just gotta. :D :P

I think her skill is enough for SCANDAL.. She is very good in playing guitar.
And I agree with Koide's comment.. MAMI is already awesome, but she hasn't reach her maximum potential..

So it all comes down to what we think is "enough".

It's interesting that everyone here shares the same perspective of what is "enough" haha. Ho Onion

That is a very inspiring reply, especially the part from Rina, "never thought of saying we can't do this".

Yes, when we strive for anything in life, we really should adopt such spirit and courage. This makes for another good reason why I look up to them, cause they inspire me.

Mami is quite good skilled, especially if it goes for live mixing with wah-wah
and other guitar effects, - power cords are just fine for Their music.

I expect Her to start doing the double-picking, playing with "dropped D"
tuning :D or experimenting with pitch shifter in two years.

although She could release her left hand from all that wrist bands,
healthier for hand and fingers.

I wonder what pick does She use?

maybe I've heard this from one of SCANDAL interview video in youtube

MAMI said that when she playing the guitar she felt it like playing with a toy (in my opinion that means MAMI was really enjoying the challenge in guitar play and yeah I could she her aura when playing guitar was so great even could drive the audience hearing/ more enjoying the song)

If in RPG, MAMI was gaining more and more EXP and gaining Greater Skill by practice and battle so she could LEVEL UPl more and More
(or MAMI really thinks what she doing now was almost same like playing RPG?? ^^a )

Good comment. For all we know, they might have started experimenting with drop tuning already. There is a song in R Girls Rock that has a low Eb. Can't remember which one right now. Or maybe it's just my ears fooling me.

Drop D tuning would suit SCANDAL pretty well. A gazillion pop punk bands use drop D and they can try using different riffing styles with that. That would be pretty cool..

Btw, if you check the SCANDAL gear thread you'll find that Mami uses Dunlop mediums.

Thanks for the info, I'll check the thread Wink

But I wonder, we are speaking about amplified sound,
does She still practice with acoustic guitar?

I read that they had small acoustic tour - have You got any fan related mp3/video ?


I would really like to hear Mami playing live using acoustic guitar (not electro-acoustic that is).

MAMI... Honest, i used to think that her skills are just slightly above average. I only took notice on Anata Ga Mawaru where her play is amazing.... That is, until I listen to Rock n' Roll Widow and Roppongi Shinzu. Literally, i had a goosebump when i hear some riffs that she had played for that 2 songs. She is a monster when it comes to guitar. AMAZING!

Btw, don't compare Haru's and Mami's skills. Haru can play a guitar, but she has to diverse her concentration on guitar bcoz she's singing, unlike Mami who can concentrate fully on playing guitar. That's why we often see Haru has mischords, and we have to understand her role as MC, Lead vocal, and rhytm. It's not easy, right?

I believe that she is an amazing or rather, above average lead guitarist, considering her age and gender. And also as I notice, she is improving as the music of SCANDAL improves~

Ooooh... Now THAT is something to look forward to...

I also like the fact that she didn't panic during that time on XMAS Live 2009 when her guitar string broke. Good thing it didn't break in the middle of the SCANDAL Baby lick.

THANK YOU! yes don't say Haruna can't play the guitar RAWR Onion
Haruna's awesome at playing the guitar and singing. She may not be at Mami's level, but she's very good!
I think Mami is the best guitarist ever! She's amazing and she puts a lot of emotion and hard work into it. She may make mistakes, but who doesn't??

She's always improving and will one day be the best! It shouldn't be said that her skills aren't enough :/

She's pretty good. When I saw one of their live performances I was watching her fingers on the fret board. And it took me quite awhile to "copy" some of her riffs. UHUH! I'm not uber skilled at doing lead parts btw.
Which is why I'm starting to have a crisis between Haruna and Mami LOL. Tears of Joy
Let's just keep on rocking to their songs,they'll all get a lot better in time. Smile
