Here are links to two wonderful example of the Royal Hawaiian Hula played by Indonesian and Netherlands bands. Thanks to Harris Sulu for the links.

The Royal Hawaiian Hula has significance in both Holland and Indonesia as it comes from the playing of George de Fretes and Rudi Wairata, the masters of that genre.

Thanks. I really like both DeFretes and Wairata's style.

They played D6 tuning if I recall.

Here is a recording I made in 2004. I also created the backing track and played an Rickenbacher ACE bakelite steel guitar, with the Sol Hoopii tuning. After the mixed song there are 2 short pieces without backing to hear the steel guitar alone.

Thank you, Bill.
I bought that Rick ACE from Joe Savage years ago and it is one of my best lap steels.

Hi Peter, nice job on the recording!

I was wondering what exactly is the Sol Ho'opi'i tuning you used?

Mahalo, Peter

Sol Hoopii tuning is called C#m7

E high
C#
G#
E
B
G# low

This is similar to other tunings except the B is missing between strings 2 and 3.

Interesting...I thought he used an E on the lowest pitch string, but I could be mistaken.

I have seen Sol's C#m/E6 as L to H

E B E G# C# E

comes from A low bass -

E A E A C# E by raising the low A to B and dropping the middle A to G#.
