  • May 09, 2008 Slack Key Music but not For Slackers!!!

    Another excellent product from Keola Beamer, but be prepared to work hard to master Keola's music. Beamer offers 5 beautiful songs in 4 open tunings, of varying complexity. The CD/tab book are good quality,easy to use and entertaining; Keola is a genial host. If you are considering...

    this book, you should already have a good knowledge of fingerpicking and be comfortable playing up and down the neck of the guitar. You will definitely have fun with this music!

  • April 15, 2001 keola is a fantastic teacher

    i have been playing classical guitar for about 1 year and loved this book by keola beamer. before each song keola plays each note of the different tuning and gives each note many times so you don't have to rush; that was very nice. he then plays the song...

    all the way through and describes each musical phrases and difficult passages. all in all, listening to the cd feels as though keola is in the room with you and teaching you slack key; his warm gentle voice and spirit is a pleasure to listen to. thanks keola.
