Good question, Brian.

It made me realize that M. Delcamp's link on this page doesn't work anymore and neither does the one I bookmarked years ago. :?

Maybe he killed his website?

A Google search for "K. Minami guitar" shows some hits to Free - scores . com, where it looks like you could download his arrangements. I'm not sure if it's really "free", though.

The web page is still there. Mr k had an unfortunate medical issue which is preventing his musical hobbies. When you find the page, drop him an email of thanks. I'm sure he would appreciate it.

Really, Mateo? I still can't find it. :(

Could you post a link to it? I'm sure it would be alright, since it's a Delcamp sanctioned site. If it's not alright, I'll just delete it. If it is alright, I'm sure M. Delcamp would appreciate the update.

Thanks,

Alan

thanks Tarbaby-
that's where i ended up as well
at the free site you mentioned. they do have his arrangements.
not sure if all but, certainly enough to keep us mere
mortals busy for a long time. his fingerings are well worth
the effort,imho...

mjbindy-
i would if i could but, i can't
find a contact through which
to thank him. do you know if the medical issue
has suspended, or put an end to his playing??

thanks again for the heads up.
if at first you don't succeed try again.
then quit.

Hi Brian, Alan

I stand corrected! The Japanese site is down. I've emailed and asked him if it is permanently down.

Yes, Kohei is finished playing, unfortunately. He says he had a stroke six years ago which caused him to lose his ability to control his left hand. He is no longer creating music as he transcribes while holding the guitar.

Free scores is legit and has all of his scores (that I am aware of): that boycotted link... you know where scores are free + /Download-PDF-Sheet-Music-Cohey-Minami.htm

I am very sorry to hear this. As an arranger myself, whenever I come across his arrangements I look carefully at them. They are very well done (though not always easy to play!) and he seems to be responsible for making an interesting range of music available for the guitar that either other arrangers have not thought about, or where he has done better!

So sorry to hear this too. I still play his arrangement of the Entertainer, which I think is fantastically well done and is certainly the best version I've played...

Good job of finding the site, bulbul!

Unfortunately we had to delete the link. When we forwarded it to Mr. Delcamp so he could update his link he found arrangements from the following composers:

G. Cassado (1897-1966)
B. Bartok (1881-1945)
A. E. Ginastera (1916-1983)
H. Kaski (1885-1957)
Z. Kodaly (1882-1967)

The good news is that the site still exists, if you can find it. :wink:

I have enjoyed K. Minami's arrangements through the years, and I'm sad to hear of his health problems and that his site is no longer active. Could we get some hints on how to find the link that bulbul found?

Thanks, Daniel.

I checked with the other moderators and we agreed that it would be alright to direct you to search Google for "minamihuhu" with the quotes. You should be able to find it easily. :wink:

Thanks, Alan! I shall now hoard away all the files on that site in case it ever disappears again.

I'm finding that "minami huhu" (note the space) works better.
