Ledward Kaapana has quite a collection of instruments but he has a couple of favorites that he keeps close at hand. One is his 1992 Martin 000-16 and another is his Moore Bettah `Ukulele custom built by Chuck Moore of Hawai`i Island. We decided to do a tribute to Chuck featuring this gorgeous instrument.
Led has been teaching me Charles E. King’s Na Lei O Hawai`i commonly known as Song of the Islands and featured in the 1942 movie of that name. Once we found all the chords in my taropatch F tuned guitar we had plenty of fun with our `ukulele and slack key guitar duet.
Led’s uke is tuned to the normal C6 tuning, with a low G string. My guitar is in taropatch F spelled C F C F A C from low to high.
