This original composition first appeared, with bass and drums, on my 1986 album, "Sweet Maui Moon" (Paradise Productions 980). It's a great piece to play. On the attached recording, I overdubbed a second guitar part and added drums and bass.

In 2014, I taught this piece at our Aloha Music Camp on the Island of Kauaʻi. Here is that tablature for solo guitar.

After you have finished this piece, go on to Hula Nā Lāʻau.
