Maunaloa Slack Key Guitar
This is the beginning to the song "Maunaloa" written by Helen Parker. This is an example of a song that is played in Hawaiian Style Slack Key, or Ki Ho'alu. It is played in G tuning (Taro Patch Tuning) which is D G D G B D (sixth string to first). I am playing from a transcription found in Ozzie Kotani's book "Guitar Playing Hawaiian Style."
If you're interested in learning more beginner level Slack-Key songs, I highly recommend Ozzie's book. You can get a copy from Amazon (link below), or pick up a copy here at the studio.
