I was taken by surprise when I realized that I haven’t posted a video since we left Hawai`i last year, and now we’re almost ready to go back. So I set up the gear in the guest bedroom to take advantage of the interesting light and the tropical pattern cover on the futon, and played a taropatch slack key version of Beautiful Kaua`i by Randy Farden.
I’m not sure why Kaua`i has so many songs written about it, but many of my favorites refer to the Garden Isle, from Uncle Dennis Kamakahi’s Koke`e to Maiki Lake and her Aloha Kaua`i. Beautiful Kaua`i has a sweet charm and many versions to use for inspiration.
It may be a while before we visit Kaua`i again, but I’m sure I’ll keep learning and playing songs about the island and its people.
