  • November 27, 2008 Excellent Musical Training

    The Hawaiian Slack Key guitar compositions are some of the most beautiful musical pieces to listen to. To be able to 'play' this music is even more of a joy. The author does a great job of introducing the music style and the CD that comes with the music greatly...

    complements the teaching. I am an intermediate banjo player so the tuning is kind of familiar to me as is picking a string instrument, however the style is different. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to 'anyone' interested in this style of music.

    Difficulty Level:
  • January 26, 2008 Music of the Islands

    The compositions are beautiful and can be challenging. The exercises in various Slack Key riffs and finger patterns are a big plus in learning the style. Songs are playable for beginning to intermediate fingerpickers,at least at slower tempos; the more advanced player will find plenty to test the fingers...

    and patience when playing up to speed! Also useful is Hanson's tab timing device (indicators under the tab notation) showing the timing of each measure. It saves time to have timing shown under the tab itself. Full performance versions of each of the compositions would have been nice (Hanson includes an at-tempo excerpt for each piece, and then a slow full length version to aid in learning the music), but the space constraints on the CD, limit having all fulllength at speed versions.A great publication for lovers of the genre, or anyone else who enjoys the laid-back, "palm-trees the swaying in the breeze" of Hawaiian Slack Key, the REAL music of Hawaii.

  • July 16, 2007 Excellent instruction on Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar

    This is an excellent instruction music book on Hawaiian Slack Key guitar. Just put the cd in, hit play, and off you go! I have increased my playing ability double time with the included cd. I don't think I will ever buy a book without one from now on...

    . The cd has slow and fast playing, tuning and other important instructions. Top notch book full of tabliture for guitar and notes for strumming if you want to include ukulele or other instruments.
