Well, It's been quite a week. It started with the So Cal Ducimer Heritage festival last Saturday (Sheila plays the dulcimer). Mark Nelson gave a workshop on playing Hawaiian music on the dulcimer --cool! He also gave a workshop on slack key guitar to quite a varied crowd and he played a great set on stage. We hadn't seen Mark for a couple of years. It was wonderful seeing him and catching up.

On Friday Sheila and I had private lessons with Mark - others did also. That night, Mark gave a house concert at Terry (chunky monkey) and Mary's house - another outstanding performance.

On Saturday Mark gave workshops on slack key guitar and ukulele. Then to top it off we all went to a luau with hula, ukulele jams and slack key. Mark played yet another great set.

Now he should be on his way back to Oregon in his cool Mini.

Mahalo Mark, for the music, the company and all of the helpful suggestions.

I forgot to mention a highlight of the ducimer festival: Uncle Henry Kamae (nephew of Eddie Kamae) was there a to give a ukulele workshop. We got to hang with him a while. He came to Mark's workshops and we all got to jam on E Ku`u Morning Dew. How's that for cool!

Aloha TPers,

Following up on Dusty's comments, I finally got to listen to all the tunes on Mark's latest CD effort. A wonderful combination of styles. For an old blues player, one favorite is "Opihi Blues" - a great rendition of Leonard Kwan's Opihi Moe Moe with slide blues. Check it out. Best song on the CD is "Road to Dukes". Got to learn this one. Thanks Mark.

It was nice getting to meet all of you on Saturday. I stayed for both workshops on Kihoalu and ukulele. Except for poor old Dee, we moved right along. Hope Mark comes out with his book # 2. I liked his explanation of the scales within a cord structure/form and the typical hawaiian song format -- din't know I was playing yellow Ginger lei until Keith started singing.
Aloha,
CAPT Mike

Mahalo to everyone...

I like "Sanoe" and "`Opihi Blues" but I think "Mood Indigo Slack" is my favorite.

BTW, I mentioned this before, but if you have iTunes you can purchase any of these songs or Mark's entire CD from the Apple Music store.

My goal is to be able to play as well as people think I can.
