In this lesson we explore an arrangement I made of Koke’e by Dennis Kamakahi. This is one of the most celebrated songs in the Hawaiian repertoire about the lovely mountain area above Waimea Canyon and coastal area below on the island of Kaua’i. It is arranged in the C Wahine tuning using C and G7 chords in first position and F and C chords in 5th position.
Here is the chord progression to memorize and follow:
C | F | C | F | C | C | G7 | G7 | C | F | C | F | C | G7 | C | C |
G | G | F | F | C | C | G7 | G7 |
C | F | C | F | C | G7 | C | F | C | G7 | C | (G7) ||
