Some mp3s of Slack Key songs, played by me in taropatch tuning. These are unedited recordings, except for some reverb. Sanoe is by Queen Liliuokalani and the arrangement is based on Cyril Pahinui's playing. Kealoha Medley and Pua Sadinia are based on the playing of Ray Kane. The guitar is a 1998 Martin SPD16-R.

Three Native American style flutes, all with approximately 7/8" bore, with curved windway and cutting edge. The bottom of the "bird" is curved to match the curved flue, which is in the flute. The song and recording setup are the same for each flute, to facilitate sound comparison, not performance artistry. The "bird" on the PVC flute is temporary.
