One of my favorite guitar players is Takeshi Terauchi, one of the many Japanese guitarists inspired by The Ventures 1962 Japanese tour. Takeshi had a whammy bar, and boy, did he know how to use it. The '62 Ventures tour inspired an entire musical movement in Japan, the Eleki scene. (Eleki is short for Eleki Boom, or Electric Boom.) Here's the mp3s for the album This is Terauchi Bushi, by Takeshi Terauchi with his first band, Bunnys.
UPDATE: Thanks to Cecile-Anne for the song titles!
