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.
