Aloha and welcome to our Intermediate Level Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar
Lessons. This level of instruction consists of “repertoire pieces”
or a selection of guitar pieces that are listed by their level of
difficulty. Each musical selection is bundled with:
- Keola Beamer’s recording of
the Hawaiian slack key guitar tuning (mp3 format)
- Keola Beamer’s
solo recording of the piece (mp3 format)
- The Tablature & Music you’ll
need to play it (PDF format)
- Keola Beamer’s study notes that clearly
explain specific guitar techniques and Hawaiian insights into the
music. (PDF format)
Keola has chosen these pieces from his Aloha Music
Camp workshops on the Big Island. They are some of his student’s
favorites. Each solo guitar piece has specific techniques and ideas
that will enhance and improve your playing. You’ll discover a world
of different musical flavors that will add variety to your music.
We recommend that you start by
selecting an individual piece and listening to the mp3 file of Keola
performing it. Remember, the easiest pieces are listed first. If you
think you’d enjoy learning how to play that particular piece, then
click on the order link to submit your order. We will send you your
username and password to access and download our copyrighted files.
From your computer, you may then view, print and study the materials.
We accept orders via credit
card (MasterCard & Visa) submitted to our secure server. We have
been processing credit card orders since 1995 without a single
problem. We are very careful with your data and release it to no one.
We process our orders and codes three times a week and send them out
every Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the afternoons, except for major
holidays. Your credit card statement will read “Starscape Music.”
Since we’ve already shared
these pieces with our very best students, we’re sure you will enjoy
them. Keola writes specifically to help and encourage his haumana
(students), because he remembers how difficult it was for him to learn
when he was a young man.
We ask that you keep your
thoughts open to the Hawaiian cultural context of the music, and play
with aloha in your heart. Keeping these two thoughts in mind will
bring some wonderful new experiences into your musical life.
