I'm heading back to Maui in a few weeks, and one of my favorite things is relaxing on the lanai while watching the lighting change with the dawn and dusk over the islands.
I would love some recommendations of sweet mellow songs to strum and hum quietly while soaking up the beauty of these magical moments in each day.
Thanks in advance :)

I'll add "Blue Hawaii" and Kiali'i Raichel's "Kauanoeanuhea" to the list.

Just "It's a Wonderful World". (It seemed perfect in Key West, why not in Maui?)

Don't know if you're into this stuff but it seems appropriate.

This progression is amazingly fun too.

Another appropriate song:

and of course... some Jack.

if you need any help with the chords let me know. The Justin James and Jack Johnson songs have tutorials on the UU front page.

Go on to Ukulele Mike's site and download his Kona Sunrise tabs. I did before leaving for the Big Island a few weeks back.

Do you ever make it down to your friends place on Lake Camelot?

Nope, didn't get to Camelot this year. Thanks for asking. Summer was too busy with company here in the Nort. Supposed to be heading down that way in March to meet up with some friends from the southern part of the state though.

Since Pekelo (Peter Cosma) just passed away recently, "Koali" has taken on a brand new feeling when we perform it. Funny, Ramon normally does Gabby's songs the way Gabby does it, but he (we) always do Pekelo's version of Koali.

Do you have a link to your (Pekelo's) version?

Oh, I found one. Awesome.

Just in case, here's one from last year. I need to tell Ramon we need to slow it down when we do it, like this:

Do any of you have the chords to Pekelo's "Going to Hana Maui"? That would be fun to play over and over to annoy my sister in law with on the road. LOL.
