It does not really matter if you are residing afar, just visiting or living permanently in Hawai'i. These are the important things to consider:Would you enjoy a journey into slack key guitar or ukulele? What about the time and commitment you will have to undertake? Do you have a strong desire, devotion, determination to learn some basic skills? Would you set aside quality time to practice daily? Would you like to move onto the next level?
The answer to learn lies within each person. I would be happy to be a guide if you want to embark on a such a journey.
An Old Playing Style of
Slack Key Guitar [Ki Ho'alu]
It's always a joy in sharing an old style of slack key guitar.
I learned some basics in the Namakelua style from slack key master Mr. Ronald J. K. Loo at Kamehameha Schools' community education program in the early 1980's. Many people have since helped me in my music journey. It is a blessing to cherish and share this nahenahe (soft and sweet) music.
