This may be off-topic, but sometimes I'm beginning to think that Mami has so much respect for Haruna, in a sense that when Mami sings her solo parts (especially in Kagen live), it's almost like she's imitating Haru... or it's just me.
I'm pretty sure, Mami's just her: she's not imitating, I mean maybe not haru... 'cause I never had seen haru shaking the head to the song rythm, every member has their own style when are in a solo part... For e.g. Rina, also shakes the head, but is more like a "lets get crazy!", Haru makes a cooler pose when there is a solo, Tomomi it's always concentrated, so it's dificult to say it... Whatever this is for another topic.

Not sure about the piano/drums, never read something like that. RINA plays piano/keyboard too and MAMI played drums but not sure about TIMO.
Well, if you are now a semi-pro bassist, I think you could play very well basics of guitars, because the basics are almost the same, but make slash or joe perry covers it's something insane for a bassist, remember Bass and Guitar are cousins not the same.
More into the topic,I think that Mami and Rina are most noticeable
experienced in the band, why? because is like (Insert here member who said it) said, unfortunately there are things, listeners does not notice, as the bass in some songs (and I'm saying it in general, for every band) but if the bass weren't there, the song might be some kind of weird. All members of the band had improved a lot, the improvement is there, but some people doesn't notice it:Rina:
She can do, and she does more quickly drumbeats, you can notice the diference in Doll: The Doll's drum part in 2009-2010 is not the same Doll's drum part of 2012-2013. Well, i'm not a Drummer, so I can't say if the Drum part it's better, but I liked it so much in latest performances. Also, I don't know hod difficult is playing the double pedal, but it's not easy as the single pedal... I think...Mami:
For Mami, just compare the guitar part of Doll, with the Awanai's guitar part... playing Awanai for a begginer is insane, that's why I said you can notice it more, because you know there is a improve.Tomomi:
She has a very good talent at playing bass, too bad people doesn't notice it... She has to do, a solo for showing her talent, but if you try to hear the bass part in a recently song of scandal you might be impressed, the bass part is so good, it's more energeticaly than the rythmic guitar but it's always in accordance with the song. You can't notice it with a naked... ear, but there is a big improve in her skills.Haruna:
Yes, she had voice problem... so? that's not reason to quit, despite the problems she had, she could get ahead. She had to work a lot her voice in order to recover. So maybe she didn't have time to improve her guitar skill, but she is good, also in earlier songs I thought she was better guitarist than Mami. But I think it's better to focus more on the voice than the guitar if you are the lead vocalist.
