Notes and Slack Key tunings from Gabby Pahinui’s classic and influential recording PURE GABBY (Hula Records – 567). Virtuoso musician and soulful singer Gabby Pahinui was the founder of the modern Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar era. This classic album, recorded in 1961, presents him mainly in a trio setting, performing many of his favorite songs. Gabby is universally hailed as the folk hero of the Hawaiian music world, and the one who has inspired virtually every slack key guitarist and many others since he made the first ever slack key recordings in 1946.
