And this, to be exact, is a model railway on a guitar!
If you've browsed my Link list you would probably have stumbled onto my model railroad blog -- The Sunny Model Railroad. (Yeah I know it hasn't been updated in a while, but it's a work in progress that is proceeding very slowly)
Funnily enough, a friend of mine used to play Takanaka's cassettes in his car all the time and that was when I first became aware of the distinctly '80s phenomena that was Japanese fusion. Think Casiopea, T-Square and of course Takanaka.
Although I didn't count him as an early influence, I do remember that the guy did have a pretty nice vibrato and a singing tone.
And after all these years it's good to know that Takanaka is still out there hitting it.
