    Looks like your’re on the road. The new site looks great. I’m really enjoying the tabs you sent me last year and delighted you’ve posted others so, we can all keep working on our calluses. Can’ wait to get my hands on the new album and collect all the ones I don’t have.

    Attending a slack key festival tomorrow night in Olympia. Stephen Ingles will be performing with some others.

    All the best and travel safe,

    Hello there I was looking for 2 songs that I don’t see on the list, ” Manoa Falls”, and “Ka Nohona Pili Kai”. Is there any way to get tablature for those 2?

      Aloha Holly,
      I hope you are doing well. I am so sorry for such a late reply. Messages sent to my website don’t always get to me but I just saw this.
      Manoa Falls is available on the sheet music page under the Oahu CD sheet music list on the right column. I haven’t written out Ka Nohona Pili Kai yet
      but will let you know when I do. Thank you so much for your interest in the songs.
