sorry to miss out on this...
I'm one of the 3 taropatchers who doesn't yet own this...
Our Colorado Costco isn't that hip to Hawaii.
So where's my best option...online I assume?

For, my favorite music publications I often buy a 2nd copy...
one to carry, bang around, use and wear out; and one if it goes OOP and so it doesn't look like the Atlas in my car...

Last time I talked to Kim Hussey. He mentioned a rewrite of the book to add songs and correct language etc. Would be nice if get melody notation or tabs.

We heard that last May in Honolulu. Don't know when the new edition will be out. No news about notes or tab, either. But if you want the current edition, and find it somewhere, snap it up. It's getting rare. We did see several Japanese editions, but the english version is almost completely out of print. We chanced on one at the gift shop at Queen Emma's Summer Palace, and it was their last copy. I can't sing very many Hawaiian songs without it.

A buddy just picked up a copy at a local bookstore, it's a perfect bound reprint of the first revision, with a 2008 printing date. No info on further revisions.

Island Bazaar in Huntington Beach just got a box of them. They put three of them out on the rack when I was in there around noon.

My Favorite is Punahele by the lete great Ray Kane. Love it. I learned it from his DVD. I like to play it old style, and sometimes with a little jazzy kick. I use an old Takamini guitar tuned Taro Patch. Learned Taro Patch from Uncle George Kahumoku a few years ago, and never went back to "normal tuning". Mahal Uncle George for saving my giuitar from the kindling pile! Mele Kalikimaka to all at T.P. Org.

So.....I want this book, but don't have time to do an internet order before leaving for Kona........

Does anyone know of a store on the Big Island I can pick this up in?

Are you a Costco member? Costco in Hawaii usually carries it. You will find it at other bookstores too.

When we were O`ahu last May, could not find the books in English anywhere. Could find plenty with translations to Japanese. I think we bought the last one on O`ahu at Queen Emma's Summer Home gift shop. It is out of print because they are working on revisions and additions, according to Aaron Mahi. So I think Braddah Jay has the last copy from O`ahu island. We hunted for the book everywhere we went and only could find the Japanese copies. And then it was just serendipity that the last day, Jay took us for a ride up Nu`uanu and Pauoa and such. We had not planned to, but we went to Queen Emma's Summer Home just shortly before they were closing. We made a quick run through the house, enough to know we want to go back; then went to the gift shop. Bling. There it was, last one they had and the lady told us no more available from publisher and that if anyone finds one they should snap it up quick, which we did and gave to our hanai braddah. And voila, he sings the beautiful Koke`e and Ku`u Home o Kahalu`u for us.

Plenty of Japanese copies at Native Books Hawai`i. At least it gives you the chords and the Hawaiian words.

But Ahunno what is on Big Island.

Two weekends ago I saw a couple of (English) copies in 2 shops in San Jose's Japantown -- the ukulele shop and the gift store that sells Hawaiian CD's (across from Hukilau)

Well, I'm not a costco member, but I do like to browse music stores and book stores. If I find one while on the Big Island, I'll let everyone know...just in case.

Just a short day away from my flight........

Boarders, WalMart...They're not spiral bound anymore either. Should even be available on-line @ Borders. (Just checked...Boarders on-line is back ordered.)
