Didn’t know where word karaoke came from. Learn something new everyday though not always sure wiki sourced facts are facts. Anyway, here it is
Karaoke (カラオケ?, bimoraic clipped compound of Japanese kara 空 “empty” and ōkesutora オーケストラ “orchestra”) (/o/ or /ˌkærəˈoʊki/; Japanese: [kaɽaoke])
So know I know but I’m not going to a bar to sing karaoke anytime soon. I think like playing the bagpipes it may not be where my talent lies or effort should be focused. Maybe visiting the bar can be a (very) long term goal. Here for now a clip of girl in a shop showing how it should be done.
Have a good day
