Adventures In Hawaiian Steel Guitar


This new December 2014 project highlights songs that I simply enjoy playing—some originals, some covers. I hope that lovers of Hawaiian Steel Guitar will appreciate the diverse range of musical genres, and recognize the evocative, expressive Hawaiian style of playing at the heart of each recording. All songs feature the Hawaiian Lap Steel Guitar, with dobro resonator guitar on Miloli‘i and About Last Night. Demos of the 17 tracks are on my main web page.

I heard your album & yourself talking about it with Randall Rospond, on Manao Radio.
Loved it immediately.
Sending it back to Australia as a present, where my brother is a big fan of Hawaiian Steel.
Thank You

Your CD “Adventures in Hawaiian Guitars” arrived today. Fantastic! 20 seconds into the first track I knew I was going to love this album.

As a result, Today I ordered your other CD “Hawaiian To Jazz” today.

Why aren’t you in Nashville?

Thank you, Tony. I’ll send out my first CD to you today. I am interested in your opinion of tracks you really like and ones you might not care for. I am almost done with a new CD project. People have been requesting something mellow and relaxing in an old Hawaiian style. Aloha, Joel
