Keola Beamer: The Art Of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar

Here's an opportunity to learn to play the lush and elegant sounds of Hawaiian slack key guitar. Keola Beamer, a contemporary master in this style and an experienced instructor, provides the perfect introduction to a rich tradition that has inspired fingerstyle guitarists worldwide.

Keola teaches seven traditional and original compositions in the special tunings that give slack key its distinctive sound. (The term refers to the loosening of the strings to create various open tunings. It can be played on any guitar, acoustic of electric.) You'll learn the use of vibrato, harmonics, slurs, harmonies in thirds and sixths, legato playing and other musical devices that evoke the tropical sounds of the islands.

Before long, you'll be playing these beautiful instrumentals in the slack key style: Kuu Lei Awapuni Melemele (My Yellow Ginger Lei), Kalena Kai (Bath House), Grandmother's Wish, Manu Kai (Seabird) Makika (The Mosquito) and He Punahele (The Favored Child). This lush fingerpicking style will add new sounds and flavors to your entire repertoire.
