It's better to play with tab than not at all. Rolling Eyes

Absolutely. I use them all them time, but I tend to transcribe my own from the recordings I like. This helps commit ideas to memory.

This is some fine music. I can't add much more, other than I had to download the album. Its going to be on the car system a lot.

Fine work as usual, Kay. In my view, the demise of Hawaii Calls, Hawaiian music, and instrumentals in general, is not so much one of taste, but a more cynical world.

My advise is don't get neurotic about string hiss. No one is going to hear it. Listen to all the great old recordings. They are all done with steel bars.

I have only done that with one string to get a seventh, but then my playing is pretty basic.

I forgot to mention your right-hand finger work. I see you do not wear picks. I probably would not try that for tonal reasons, but in your case you show better dexterity than most players with picks - ...

I get the sense that Steel Guitar in Hawaii is as described by Jeff Au Hoy. Certainly it disappeared from popular music by the 1960s, but it seems to have some very strong interest among Hawaiians tod ...

I think a lot of us are tone junkies. Of course the amp has a lot to do with it. I was using a 1970s Fender Champ which sounded great for Hawai'ian music on my Oahu Tonemaster, Ric B6 and my 8 string ...

It begs the question of what those players were aiming for. Distortion was not an ideal in the pre-Satisfaction (I can't get no) days. I remember my brother's early Rock and Roll band trying anything ...
