I’ve been playing a lot of Hawaiian songs on my low G tenor for several months now. I grew up playing and listening to a lot of old country and folk music, and when I was picking my way through Jambalaya the other day, I accidentally added in a Hawaiian vamp and realized it kind of works… Lol. I guess the Hawaiian revival era of music that I like and old country/folk music have a lot in common anyways, so it kind of makes sense. The more I think about it, the more I realize how similar they are. Hank Williams used a lot of steel slide guitar and it has an almost Hawaiian sound sometimes.
