My way into Hawaiian music was guided hugely by Dancing Cat and George Winston. As a result I was rather late in discovering artists like Peter Moon, Sunday Manoa, and many others. When Uncle Raymond Kane said he was the composer of "Pua Sadinia" I accepted it and worked diligently at learning his arrangement.
Since then I've learned that the composer was David Nape and that Uncle Ray's melody is an interpretation, a close approximation with liberties. Heck, I even discovered a George Winston piano arrangement! So I've started to work out an arrangement that stays a bit closer to the original melody. In the meantime I shot a clip based on Uncle Ray's version:
It looks like The Guitar Workshop is gone, the URL is up for sale, but I was lucky enough to snag a copy of their Ray Kane instructional video and that's my main source for learning this arrangement. I think a lot of the material on that DVD is up on YouTube now.
Nice Fran! Hard to think of anyone who could milk every drop of sweetness and then some out of a simple tune better than Uncle Ray. Didn't realize TGW was goa, they had some good Slack Key, Ukulele instruction DVDs.
