Well, I bought a cheap digital camcorder a few months ago with the intention of recording some new youtube vids...finally had some time today to sit down and get some of em going...(I had one more, but I accidentally deleted the damn thing...haha)...anyways, here they are...comments and suggestions are welcome

...i should mention that I broke 2 fingernails this weekend, so I trimmed em...pretty short. Anyways, that's my excuse kinda missing the strings every once in a while and the thumpy-ness of some of the phrasing...Honestly, I think it wasn't really too noticeable, except for one part in the "falling in love" video...if you catch it you catch it...haha

also, if you're wondering what the "clicking" is in the background...that's the dog walking across the wood floor...:p

Oh yea, and in the "falling in love" video, I'm using my Low-G Pono, and the wound string that I've got on there now is kinda overpowering...sorry about that...I'm still trying to find a good wound-G since Ko'olau changed theirs

Thanks man, I recorded an instrumental version of Bob Marley's "Turn Your Lights Down Low" too...but managed to hit the wrong button on the camcorder and deleted it!

I'll see if I can't get some time later this week to try that again...haha.

I paid $800 for the KoAloha and somewhere in the upper 700's for the Pono

Keoni = John

From what I understand "Keoni" isn't a "real" hawaiian name...it's an english-ized hawaiian name that's basically the equivalent of John

Ok, there were a couple of requests for tabs...so here we go.

I should mention that these aren't exactly what I'm playing...I don't count my strums when I'm playing and I don't think about some of the simple fills that I do...so that said:

1) The parts of the tab that look like strums shouldn't be taken exactly as its written...just figure out what sounds good for you when you're strumming.

2) On the "Falling in Love" tab, I didn't realize how much "extra" stuff I add-in when I play it...I tried tabbing it the way I play it...but it's making me dizzy...haha...I did tab some of the arppegio (however the hell you spell that) patterns...but just like the strums, I wouldn't play it exactly as it's written because it's probably wrong...just play around with it. This song has a LOT of room to add your own little things into it

aaah...brah....now I feel bad for Johnny-girl...:P
...well, if you look up "ke oni" in a hawaiian dictionary it means something like "the movement" ...I'm not sure if that's better or worse though...hehe

Thanks for the congrats, and no problem on the tabs! Just keep in mind that the strumming parts of the tab aren't accurate (the number of strums is likely off...I don't count strums when I play, I just strum till it feels "right"). If there's anything I can do to help, just let me know.

Hi,
I just changed the G on my soprano to Ko-olau low G silver but it is very "noisy". I am interested to know if you have solved the issues of the hunt for a great low G for soprano or concert? Any suggestions welcome. Thanks.

Sorry, I still haven't found a wound low-g that I'm happy with...honestly, my search kinda lost steam...I've been learning slack-key guitar lately and my ukes have been a little neglected

awesome tab as always, but the tabs for the "But I" - the 0--0h2 - sounds a little wrong to me. I play the the same 0--0h2 on the C-string so it matches better with the following

A------
E----0
C----0
G----0
