||"I feel that every
artist in an oral tradition sounds different. Slack key puts a premium on playing from
your heart with your own special touch. That's why I'll show anybody anything they want to
see." - Ozzie Kotani
Not long ago, slack key guitar was
in danger of dying out. Fortunately a renaissance of Hawaiian culture that began
over a quarter century ago has continued, and today slack key is is still here.
Whether you are in the islands of Hawai`i or on the other side of the world, there are a
number of people sharing this art through performance, books and video.
I have attempted to list and review slack
key instructional materials. I hope you will contribute your own reviews too.
It is all about sharing.
