I was on the island about a year and a half ago. I met Troy Fernandez. He gives lessons. If I lived there, I would be his student.

I'd love to get a lesson or two from Troy Fernandez. I've got a LONG way to go before I could do justice to any of his work! :p

Love "On Fire" by Troy Fernandez as well as the riff in Kawika.

If you can manage, try to get some lessons with Byron Yasui. He is an amazing teacher, not only knowing how to play, but also the theory behind the music.

What about the teacher for us all, Aaron Cromwell at Hawaii Music Supply in Haleiwa.
