Thanks, Claudia, I wish I'd held on to my copy of the LP.

I have mostly worked this out on a 5-string fiddle tuned CFCFC. More shaded to "Ka Manu", although Iʻll have to play it a few more [hundred] times before I can sing with it....

Put da "pila" back in "Kanikapila"

Even though I love playing around in G Wahine, I'm figuring out "Paniolo Slack Key" in taropatch, because I don't want to retune between songs in my medley. The notes are all there, but doing it Auntie's way is sure a lot more convenient (grin).

So what is the correct way to strum a ukulele to accompany slack key?

Geoff, I would guess the "correct way to strum an ukulele to accompany slack key" would just be something simple & rhythmic that does not take attention from the lead slack key guitarist. An ukulele theoretically in equivalent to the "2nd positions" we use in slack key. Therefore it should never clash with a slacker playing in the first position or 3rd.

In proper slack key etiquette with mutliple guitars, if the lead slack key guitarist is playing in the first position then accompaniment should be played in the 2nd or 3rd positions (octaves)If the lead is in the 2nd position then accompaniment is played in the 1st or 3rd....etc. This way the accompanying player doesn't muddy up the water. The objective is to enable the listener to hear distinctly what the lead is guitarist is playing with as little distraction as possible.
