Puamana Hawaiian Steel Guitar Lesson

by Joel Katz on January 8, 2014

I’ll be doing quite a bit more work on my steel guitar lessons. I am going to teach in a C6 tuning with a High G string. This tuning has an advantage over the standard C6 tuning, in my opinion, for accompaniment and chord solos for Hawaiian style. You can adapt this to a standard C6 tuning by moving everything over one string. Pairs of notes played on strings 1 and 2 can be found seven frets higher on strings 2 and 3 in standard C6. Herein lies the advantage of the High G tuning. We sacrifice the low C for the higher notes we need 95% more of the time, and we get them without having to jump up 7 frets.

Here’s Puamana. It’s short and simple and good for beginners. You can hear a demo on my main websitehttp://joelkatzmaui.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Puamana-C6-High-G.pdf
