Album Notes
Hawaiian slack key music won back to back Grammy Awards for the Hawaiian music category in 2005, 2006 and 2007. This has elevated slack key to new levels or exposure and enjoyment. As a cultural icon in Hawaii it is tied generally to the guitar. With this CD David Heaukulani introduces this unique music style for \'ukulele players who can now enjoy the same pleasure of listening to Hawaiian slack key style tailored to the \'ukulele. Four different slack tunings are featured: Open G (taro patch), Wahine D, Wahine G, and F. David Heaukulani published the book, Ukulele Slack Key, in 2007 to accompany his \'ukulele classes he teaches at the East Hawaii Cultural Center in Hilo, Hawaii. This CD was basically a result of pleas from \'ukulele players who purchased the slack key \'ukulele book asking for a music CD featuring \'ukulele slack key styling.

Slack Key Ukulele
Great music for any time of day. I especially like hearing the ukulele and the vocals together.


Slack Key 'Ukulele
This album is a great find. Its nicely recorded, great tunes and perfect if you are interested in slack key uke or guitar. David Heaukulani has a very clean understated style that just gets better with repeated listening. Thanks!

Good selections of songs and a very sassy voice to go along with them.
