Sad Doesn't anyone play the song "Down Where The Tradewinds Blow" anymore. I haven't heard it in many years and it wasn't played much back in the day. It was used in a good movie years ago. And how about "Make Believe Island". Lots of others I keep remembering that I never hear anymore. Perfect for lap steel.

Wally, I love those old Hawaiian songs, and remember hearing more when I started playing
in the late 40's. Sure would like to hear more now. Here is probably my favorite at this time.
Maybe some others will post their favorites.

BEYOND THE REEF

Down Where The Trade Winds Blow 1937

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qF-mlxHi_G8


Sung by Gene Austin, any ideas on the steel player?

Wally, glad you enjoyed the song. Smile A great movie with Hawaiian music background
played on steel guitar is DONOVAN'S REEF, starring John Wayne and several other
famous actors and actresses. The movie was filmed on location on Kauai, Hawaii, and
has great scenery also. You can probably get a copy of the DVD from your local library.

I am working on an E9th arrangement of this song.
There is a song by the same name done by Marty Robbins but it seems to be quite different from the original. Very Happy

Wally, while listening to some old Marty Robbins songs last night, I heard
these 2 old Hawaiian songs with great steel guitar music. Thought you and
other forum members might enjoy these.
