Please feel free to ask questions about using the website, downloading the sheet music, and other tech related issues here.
Did you know you can slow down all the videos to half speed? Just click on the wheel to the right of the volume control in the video player and select speed .5x
This can really help as you study songs and try playing along.
There are two bugs that I have been working with a web designer on fixing:
1. The Complete Lesson buttons don’t log finished lessons. This is an issue with the software of the lesson framework and my website theme. We are working on this! Please log your completed lessons in a journal or word document for now. It should be fixed soon.
2. The audio player does not work using Safari as a browser. It works fine on other browsers including Google Chrome and Firefox.
Remember that you can download PDFs of all the sheet music. The sheet music links are at the bottom of each lesson that uses sheet music (just a few don’t). Click on the red highlighted title of each song or topic and you will be taken to another page with the sheet music. You can export this as a PDF. In Safari, click on File > Export as PDF.
Similar steps are available in other browsers as well. Let me know if you need help with this.
I hope you are enjoying learning slack key–I am always here to answer questions and give feedback on your progress.

I just signed up on your workshop. I’m enjoying learning Hilo Rag now (since hearing another student at AMC last month playing it) – such a fun piece to play. I thought you said at AMC that you had some Makana songs on your site, but I can’t find them. I would really like to learn ‘Ihiuka and Walking With You.
Thank you for your help – so much fun playing slack key.

I have transcribed some of Makana’s songs including ‘Ihiuka and will get to filming the lessons after returning home from touring on the West Coast in May.
Mahalo for joining the workshop!

This is wonderful news, I really love Ihiuka, as well as Deep in an Ancient Hawaiian Forest and Walking With You. I look forward to seeing the videos on Makana’s music. Mahalo Jeff. – Staci07/01/2019 at 1:09 pm #12408
Aloha, I am filming new lesson videos and posted ‘Ihiuka with sheet music, and video lesson, and a performance video by Makana.
