Craig & Raymond,

Once again, thank you for your generous info. That's what I like about this site, I always come away with more than I expected. I just hope I can give back in some way too. I'll check out both of your suggestions.

Mahalo Nui Loa!

Hi to everyone here. I just started playing slack key a few weeks ago (been playing guitar for over a year, and trombone since I was 12). I've flown through Keola beamer's online stuff (I know its easy), and was looking to collect as much literature as I can about slack key. I grew up in Hawaii, and moved to the mainland about 9 years ago. I didn't really get into hawaiian music until I moved.

Does any one know where I can get a copy of this book? I would love to get my hands on this, as I hope to be able to power through these some day in the future!

-Nick

Thanks Dusty! It appears that he might have one. Is the site in Japanese? I can't understand any of it...

Yes, it's in Japan. His email address is on the page. Just write and ask him. He knows English.

With the last post to this in 2004, have fellow slackers lost interest in this book? Why with all the interest have these books gone and stayed out of print. Not just this one, but all the others that have gone out of print. When I see these great sources, I have to wonder why no one has published them again. Someone needs to get a hold of the copywrite and reprint these great books. Maybe in modern tab? Let me know if you have any or any ideas?

On time, In tune, Aloha

The Red Book is an excellent resource. I have several of the songs from this book in my repetoire. However, since the tablature is different from what I am comfortable with, it can be a chore to get to the point of playing the song well. Not sure you will "in financial terms", find enough interest to republish.

At one point I looked into republishing Ray Kane's book but the copyright holder had no interest in selling the rights or doing anything to get it republished. I never got a straight answer as to why.

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

When I was studying with Peter Moon almost forty years ago, he made me study the Red Album. So I learned all of the songs on it. Several of Leonard's songs from the Red Album are included in the two texts that I will release this summer. Manini is in the Methodology and the more advanced songs Opihi Moemoe, Opihi Bounce and Pau Pilikia are in the anthology. I have transcribed most of this album and am seriously considering releasing the Red Album study within the year.

Hi Mike,

Yes. I think you already have a headstart on everybody else.

Peter,
There is SO MUCH material in your books. I am just now appreciating how much study, time, effort, and love you put into it. I have been working on the hula ku'i mele and trying to sing and play with the variations you demonstrate -- there is a lifetime of fun in your books.

I have taken Leonard's Red Book and hand converted some of the tab into more standard format and learning them that way. My current favorite is Nahenahe - I like the tuning and what leonard did with it -- Keala's Mele fits in there.

I'm still praying that you recover and get back to a more normal routine.

Aloha,

In case anyone is looking for a copy of the Red Book, there is one on abebooks.com:

It isn't cheap, but it is good.

if something is "out of print", then it can legally be copied, isnt that right?

i have thought about putting this book online, I have made copies of it for myself, just in case anything happened to it, but its such a great book, i think it should be reproduced digitally and given away to all those interested.

it's the book i first began with, and i really think its one of the best books ever made.
