    Here is my entry for this week. It is a forecastle shanty sung on the old whaling ships which used to go down to the Hawaiian islands for R&R after long months hunting whales in the arctic ocean.

    As a bonus, those of you who haven't heard it might like to hear my song about the history of the Ukulele and Portuguese (and generally Western) influence on the island's eco systems. It includes me on Seagull Merlin and my mate Jim playing the Cavaquinho - the steel strung father of our beloved family of instruments.

    That you can find here.

    And here is my entry for 286:

    Barbablanca: Rolling Down To Old Maui
    Aloha, Bernie, old buccaneer, good to have you aboard! And this time unexpectedly a non-original but an old shanty about seamen relaxing on Maui (and having a bad influence on polynesian girls). Convincing performance as always, this was just great again with excellent time keeping, picking and background choir! Mahalo!

    What a sweet and tender video to slowly sneak out Season 286. Thank you for this beautiful JJ tune – the 3rd now for the Aloha Season – with a nice picking /strumming mixture and silent and sensitive singing what was ideal for this title. You really captured the mood. Mahalo!

    Finding a Hawaiian song was a hard challenge, as I don't know a whole lot of Hawaiian artists.

    With a little help from Google I discovered Kui Lee, and decided to give this song a shot. I am almost surprised that no one else has done it, since googling hawaiian songs will bring this up alongside Tiny Bubbles etc.

    I actually know quite a few Hawaiian songs by heart. One of 'em I can't sing yet! Still needs some work. Here is an original I wrote way back in the day about a year after I learned to play the uke. Usually "Lamb Chop" sings this one for me (: I also might sing it a bit different and, um, I'm wearing Hawaiian shorts but...guess you can't see that huh? Lol.



    Code:
    I was strolling on this little beach at Hanauma Bay
    
    Thought, If I have a choice when it comes my time

    I hope I donít get lost along the way
    Cuz, next time Iím cominí back Hawaiian
                           
    I just love to feel that ocean spray
                             
    Next time Iím cominí back Hawaiian
    
    
    Beneath the tall palm trees
    
    Mele for lahui    	              (Songs for the people of HI)		
    
    Heíe nalu fun                       (Wave sliding fun)
                     
    Upon the sea
    
    
                             
    I hope I donít get lost along the way
                                 
    Cuz, next time Iím cominí back Hawaiian
    
    A hui hou is what Iím gonna    say, Eh eh, Eh eh       (See ya later)
                           
    Next time Iím cominí back Hawaiian
    
    
    But send me back to the past
    
    Help Liliíu okalani last
    
    Tell Captain Cook
    
    What to do with his fore mast
    
                          
    Nā ʻAumākua  please show me the way                     (family gods)
                                  
    Cuz, next time Iím cominí back Hawaiian
                            
    Donít be sad upon my fated    day,  Eh eh, Eh eh       
                             
    Next time Iím comminí back Hawaiian
    
    Send me back by any means
    
    Before there was sunscreen
    
    Iíd like to be born with hula
                           
    In my genes
    
                             
    I hope I donít get lost along the way

    Aloha to Denmark! What a surprise, we didn’t know this one because searching for classic ukulele or steel guitar songs doesn’t lead you to this Hawaiian artist playing Bossa Nova style music on nylon string guitar. So we’re glad you did it and showed with your soft picking and warm singing timbre what a beautiful song this is. And you did it justice although this really is a hard one with complex harmony and key shifts. Respect, Viking, this was very good, mahalo for bringing this to Season 286!

    What a wonderful original, Janet, so good you joined in! Everything works together, a catchy melody over a nice harmony and fine lyrics and an elaborated ending. And you sang it with the right feeling and in good mood. What more can we say? Perhaps a wonderful and worthy last song for Season 286. Mahalo!
