humor, recovery, horseracing, kvetching, spirituality ... or whatever's on my mind, one day at a time.

Keola Beamer: Elepaio Slack Key
I loves me some slack key guitar! It's an interesting form of fingerstyle playing with some of the strings detuned (or "slackened"). The style originated in Hawaii. Keola Beamer and Hapa are two popular slack key guitar artists/groups. Whenever I play Keola Beamer in my office at work, people will inevitably stop, poke their head through my office door, and ask who it is.
