If you like Mongolian Chop Squad ( Beck ) and or Sound! Euphonium this is a great manga ! Jimi Hendrix fans a must read!

Shiori Experience - Jimi na Watashi to Hen na Oji-san

Shiori was once a guitarist in a light music club in high school. No, unlike K-on, it was a serious band, but her first live performance was dashed when her brother ran away from home with a lot of debt, to become a musician in Tokyo.

A decade later, Shiori is now a high school teacher, leading a boring, uneventful life and paying off the debt... till she runs into the ghost of none other than a famous guitarist Jimi-you-know-who.

A story of a 27-year-old woman on her way to a music legend begins here./ Note the age 27 very important!

Shiori and the Top notch school band teacher do not get along ! The ghost of Jimi come along and picks her because she has a similiar White Stratocaster! She has to form a band and play honestly before she turns 27 / or else!

This is very cool lots of pages and cool music history!

Really enjoying this manga so far! A unique mix of wild fun and moving drama.

Was I the only one who thought of Supernatural when they brought up demons and crossroads...?

FUCK YES, I just started reading this yesterday! ^_^
It's freaking awesome- hilarious yes, but it puts a tear in my eye when I see Jimi talking about guitar and music in general...... Reminds me of dreams that didn't work out....

Ooh, somehow missed the latest chapter release by nearly a month!

Meguro joins the party! And then...a new challenger appears!? The whole 'make a deal and die at 27' was foreshadowed as being a thing not unique to Shiori, but I didn't actually think we'd meet another person being haunted! Moreover, I'm starting to realize how little I know about the music world lol

Now I'm excited to see Shiori interact with a real live foreigner- will he be an ally? Join their band, mayhaps? Love interest for our main gal? Or will he be a rival in the race to become a legend!? Ah, so exciting!
