Move Over, Iz

Blogging has taken a back burner to other projects here at Planet Haolewood and today I’d like to tell you about one of them. This ukulele belonged to my grandmother. Like the canoe I raced in, it's made of Koa, a hardwood unique to Hawaii. According to the guy at Larry’s Music, it was made in the 1960s by Kamaka, a ukulele maker of note. I’ve started learning to play it by downloading chord charts. So far I’ve learned to play:

Blowin’ in the Wind
Swing Low, Sweet Chariot
Take on Me
Hold me now
You Shook me all Night Long
Somewhere Over the Rainbow
The Lumberjack Song
Ring of Fire
Amazing Grace
