In the last couple of minutes of This Video...pretty fun and it's nice to hear him picking on his resonator.

Hi Kat,

It's a beautiful song. The young girl accompanying him plays lovely.
He gets the right Hawaiian feeling, I think.

There is a lady I heard from Hawaii sings this brings tears to the eye.

Some of that Hapa Haole stuff is good.

Frank

Ruth Buzzi lives not to far from here. I see her from time to time at the grocery store. I'll have to ask her if she kept at the guitar after her first "ink-chink" lesson. At least she started with the best teacher around.

That is not just an average resophonic guitar. It appears to be a resophonicized classical guitar. I never saw one of those before but have heard what must have been one on an instrumental German Christmas album. To be honest, the sustain (and fingered vibrato) of the higher notes gets on my nerves after a short time.

I hope nobody thinks that's an actual first lesson on guitar. Wrapping the left hand around the neck and letting it hurt is not recommended.

I see that Ruth has planted her right little finger on the front of the guitar. (Some people like that, but I hate it. I tried it once, and it seemed to lock up my entire right hand.) But never mind me. The point is that she's tried guitar before, because she knew to do that.

It's cute, but it's just a skit, not a lesson. Sorry, kat.

I could be wrong but if it's the guitar I'm thinking of it was given to Chet by "Los Indios Tabajaras" a duo from Brazil. And yes it's a nylon string resonator. A recent issue of Fretboard Journal had an article about this group.

No problem, leeneia, I never thought it was anything but a bit of fun, anyway.

Many years ago, Los Indios Tabajaras appeared on the pop music scene with "Maria Elena." This duo was supposedly found in the Amazon jungles. They had, quite miraculously, learned to play a guitar they just happened to find without benefit of training or tuning, etc. This, or something close to it, was contained on the album cover of their first record. The truth was probably interesting enough, but you know how agents are. They created this whole Indian persona and a mysterious resume' to go with their headdress feathers and costumes.

I was always mystified at the sound they got out of what seemed to be more or less standard classical guitars. Thanks for answering that question.
