Japanese song 日本の歌 (for Seiji Kojima)
composed and performed by David W Solomons
Score available fromhttp://dwsolo.load.cd/sheet...

This "song" for classical guitar is based on an original melody using a minor pentatonic scale, in quasi-Japanese style, with many effective classical guitar techniques and variations.
I wrote this "song" for a friend at Oxford University by the name of Seiji Kojima, back in 1975. The notes of the melody reflect the sound of his name. I have since discovered that he is now the Japanese ambassador to Pakistan - how things move on!
