A busy week for Steel guitar

by Joel Katz on June 30, 2014

I’m looking forward to a busy week of Hawaiian Steel Guitar. Come check me out at the public performances. Tonight, Hyatt Tihati Luau, Wednesday Mulligans, Thursday Ko at the Kea Lani, Wailuku First Friday, Saturday and Sunday at old Lahaina luau. George Kahumoku’s workshop week was fantastic and I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about hawaiian music for a week.

Keanae on Hawaiian Steel Guitar

by Joel Katz on May 20, 2014

Keanae positions and Tab

This is a Fun and fairly simple song I did in my Hawaiian Steel Guitar class this semester. I show the melody in tablature and also some positions to accompany the vocal. We use a C6 tuning with a High G string, a very versatile tuning for Hawaiian music. High to low it is G  E  C  A   G   E.  Just shift things over by one string if you are in standard C6. I recommend Dennis Pavao’s version as a reference. There is also a demo on my website. Email me for the practice track I use with my class joel@joelkatzmaui.com. Enjoy
