My favourite Bassist is Minei Makkatsu ((mACKAz) ex. HaMC)
There's not many video's of him playing solo, but I especially like his solo from Sakura-Con 2010 (Not on Youtube)


My favourite Guitarist is Syu (of Galneryus)
This video alone speaks for itself, along with every Galneryus track.


My favourite Vocalist is MAH (SiM (Silence is Mine))


I can't honestly say there's any drummers that stand out to me more than others, so I can't say I have a favourite.

Favorite bassist
Spoiler:
Uehara Futoshi "Ue-chan" - the popping and slapping he does is pretty cool and his bass playing is very diverse.

Maximum the Hormone - Minoreba Rock

Favorite vocalist
Spoiler:
Takahiro Morita - his vocals are amazing. He has a raspy tone and a very clean tone, and his vocal range is pretty big.

One Ok Rock - Kimishidai Ressha

Favorite pianist
Spoiler:
Joe Hisaishi - he has a very distinct sound. He does most of the soundtracks for Studio Ghibli films. I like his simple and modern sounding style.

Joe Hisaishi - Summer

Favorite guitarist
Spoiler:
Kensuke Kita because I really like the sound of his guitar riffs, even though they are really simple. Without him in the band, I think Asian Kung-fu Generation would sound very bland.

Asian Kung- Fu Generation - Rewrite

I don't really have a favorite drummer, so I guess I'll go with Rina Suzuki of Scandal

These are some of my favorite Japanese bands/ groups:
Spoiler:

male groups:

Ellegarden (marry me):


Stance Punks (I wanna be):


Blue Hearts (Hito ni yasashiku) - first japanese band/ song I've ever listened to


Asian Kung-Fu Generation (haruka kanata):


Maximum the Hormone (koi no mega lover):


One Ok Rock (kanzen kankaku dreamer):


Good 4 Nothing (It's my paradise)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
female groups:

Scandal (taiyou to kimi ga egaku story)


Yum!Yum!Orange (Precious Days):


AKB48 (10nen zakura)

song starts at 2:20

Not Yet (pera pera perao)
