It's easier to ask for forgiveness, than permission!

I have been unable to order Peter's book. His website is unavailable and my email to him is unanswered. Anyone know how whether his book is still available and how it can be ordered?

Aloha!

I suspect everyone knows the answer but Peter's site is up and healthy now.

I ordered a copy of his book last week and it arrived today. Great book!!! Thanks, Peter!

Regards.

Just an update: although the website is still up, sadly the book is out of print and no longer available.

I just spoke with Peter on the phone and he's retiring and it didn't make sense to do another print run.

(As an aside, would anyone have an idea where I might pick up a used copy?)

Echoing Geoff's comment above, this is a bummer if Peter's book is no longer available. I've been working through Ozzie's book, and have been thinking about what "book #2" should be. Peter's book sounds perfect. Anyone know of a source, or can anyone suggest a good second book for the aspiring ki ho'alu player? I am on Oahu, if that helps.

Mahalo!

Jack, I found that Mark Hanson's "Masters" http://markhansonguitar.com/product/masters-of-hawaiian-slack-key/ had some excellent tabs of well known players and pieces.

Ozzie's second DVD is a winner http://www.ozziekotani.com/product-category/slack-key-instruction/ .

Led's Homespun video is another fine resource, with very detailed tab of some wonderful tunes. https://www.homespun.com/shop/product/the-hawaiian-slack-key-guitar-of-ledward-kaapana/ And Homespun has a number of other videos/books as well.

I've been told that both Patrick Landeza and Keoki Kahumoku's videos are great, another from the same distributor that I watch over and over is Uncle Raymond Kane's video, which includes no tab but brings Uncle to the screen in fine fashion. http://www.theguitarworkshop.com/a/ray-kane

Is there any further word on Peter Medeiros and his Magnum Opus?
The OOP list we've seen is SAD.

All the books mentioned here are great.
Ozzie's Vol. 1 is essential --the ABC's plus.

perhaps more beginner friendly...
Hanson's book is beautiful, and once you get your basics, most tunes are playable.--
and cover's several Masters, and tunes/tunings...but a little stop and go may occur when I play it... (hey, that's called "Rubato" Dude!)

And IF Keoki's#1 How to play Hawaiian slack key, or whatver it's called in DVD is still around, it has the stuff he'd drill us on at camp in earlier years--slack key scale in Taropatch, etc. Basic, essentials. Learned near a Napili beach thundering 30 yards away, and under a shade tree.

But Peter's book is Gold, going in the vault.
It compiled treasures of stuff, put it in useable, but also Musical notation and analysis of what's musically going on...

He compiled a beautiful book which should be in the Smithsonian...
but available for checkout!
Love Peter's Book and heart that went into creating it.
Covering:
Different players approaches, tab and music, history...
And Awesome Gabby tunes and drills.
When you hear it and ask,
"What's he doing, what tuning etc...
It's usually there.
And Thank God for George Winston's site with a plethora of recorded tuning info.
Great people here in this Slack Key and Hawaiian Culture Universe.

Thanks for the plug Gordon. We will start publishing again soon, but just a few copies. It is an expensive endeavor due to the cost of printing. I have to make a few edits to the manuscript and hopefully will have it out in several months. PM

Kumu Peter, this strikes me as a perfect application for a PDF or an e-book. Saves the printing costs, or at least shifts them to the purchaser instead of the author up front, and makes distribution easy. Just a thought.

I should crack open your book for another reading, BTW. Pono stuff!

Alternatively, have it with a print-on-demand printer, which is what I think Mark Nelson has with his Oldtime Hawaiian Slack Key book.
