    Default Ku'u Home O Kahalu'u by Olomana?

    Hey everybody!

    I am currently in search of the tabs for Olomana's song "Ku'u Home O Kahalu'u" but was surprised about how hard it was to actually find them! This is my dad's favorite song from back home, and so I made it my new goal to be able to play this for him on his birthday.

    Hmm... I couldn't get the video to embed, so here is a link to the song:

    Can anyone help me?

    Many mahalos

    Thank you sooooooooo much everybody! mm stan and 1014, I appreciate both of your help very much

    My dad's birthday isn't until May, so I definately have some time to practice lol; but I want to play and sing it perfectly for him

    But once I've got the song down, I'll have someone help me record it so I can share it with everyone (I do have a webcam on my laptop... but I have no idea how to make it or the mircophone work lol)

    i havent played the song in awhile and i no more my `ukulele with me to figure it out, but I typically play the second version. try some different arpeggios, instead of strumming and for those kani/tings use harmonics. hope that helps.

    Alohalani1214,
    Like 1014 said, I like to arpeggio(Picking) it too ...and the first link he posted i like the best...I heard him lately with his new updated group with that lady from OHA Haunani Apliona are at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. I always like
    that song and it is easy to play either strumming or picking...another one your father might like is by Brother walter, Sweet Lady Of Waiahole..if he's from Kaneohe, he'll know it...happy strummings it's a popular song and a fun one and easy, Have fun and enjoy! Happy Strummings!!! A Hui Ho!! MM Stan
