From the Island of Berkeley: Memoirs from a California-Born Hawaiian

From the Island of Berkeley [1]In this memoir, Hawaiian slack key guitarist Patrick Landeza describes what it was like to learn the instrument from some of the masters of the genre— George Kuo of Local 677 (Honolulu, HI), Raymond Kāne, Dennis Kamakahi, and Cyril Pahinui. Landeza describes how, having not been born in Hawaii, learning slack key guitar connected him with his roots and led him to become one of the leading slack key guitarists of today.
