Aloha, I started playing slack key guitar when I was pregnant. I had been playing guitar for about 12 years and fell in love with slack key when I went to festival in Waimea on the the big island. The guitars were singing like I had never heard before and I wanted to learn to make that kind of music. I never had enough patience to sit down and learn until I was pregnant and wanted my daughter to hear the soothing melodies and rhythmic base notes as the guitar lay on my big belly. I thought it would make by daughter clam and peaceful. I now have a really wild, rough and tough 2 year old girl. She has been coming to watch me play at open mic's on oahu and california. I'm still new to the art form, but trying to get past my fears and share the music.

Hey Kendyl

Welcome to the 'Patch. I've seen a couple of your videos on YouTube "You go girl!!!" Wanted to let you know that Lanet Abrigo holds a monthly kanikapila at Pizza Bob's in Haleiwa,isn't that where you're at? Anyway check out the Kanikapila Forum for updates on the next one. Good way to meet other Taropatchers with music as a bonus.

We have been having fun in SoCal with Kendyl visiting and playing for our weekly Open Mic over the last four weeks.

You are getting better every week! You should put a grass skirt on your daughter and have her hula for moola !

Come by on Thursday Night at the Ocean House in Carlsbad for our weekly ukulele kanikapila. I'll talk to Pat and have you play during our break. We start at 6PM and end at 9PM. We have loaner ukuleles and music books for visitors. The wahines can teach you to join in the hula.

E Malama Pono,

Welcome to Taro Patch, Kendyl. I think Auntie must have posted your vids from You Tube a time for two. You attacked a very tough art form -- tough to learn it, but oh so worth the rewards. There is no more beautiful music. I'd be interested if the baby calmed down in utero when she heard the music. I know there are studies of using slack keu guitar music in NICCU's and it calms the preemies down and seems to soothe them.

Me ke aloha
Malama pono,

E komo mai! Ki ho'alu can touch the heart and soothe the soul. I hope I can hear you play somehow.
