Volume 2 continues the exploration of the classic Hawaiian guitar solos from the Golden Age of Hawaiian music that began in Volume One of the Art of Hawaiian Steel Guitar. Contained here are precise transcriptions and playing hints of classic tunes like 'Hula Girl' and 'Kaala', by the greatest players like Sol Hoopii, The Genial Hawaiians, and many others. Together with the accompanying CD, this book is a great tool for learning this exquisite slide guitar style. Easy to use by both acoustic, resonator and electric slide players. A whole chapter of Hawaiian turnarounds is an added bonus. Most of the tunes are in major tuning but there are several in B minor and C6.
