The only thing wrong with Jerry's book is that there is not enough of it.

If you have the time and the patience to go through this list, there is some good stuff, but much of it is just plain painful audio. Who the hell thought the organ was evocative of the South Seas? You ...

I don't have favourites. I like all those mentioned so far and I would add to the list Jeff Au Hoy, Isaac Akuna and Chuck Lettes.

PS Did anyone mention Hal Aloma?

A flat seventh tone in a sixth tuning is awkward to say the least. On my 8 string A6th guitar I tune the bottom string to G. Its out of the way, but its there when you need it. Its all a compromise.

Ironically, as much as I love Hawaiian steel guitar, I do not like the marches. I find them tedious listening. However, I do recognise the expertise.

I am sure Basil's bars are an improvement, but what we are seeing here is the technological breakthrough which rendered the rusty railroad spike obsolete.

If you have been through the Youtube Tahitian offerings, you probably came upon this wonderful LP. It has some steel guitar.
