Gabby Pahinui's appearance on Ry Cooder's Chicken Skin Music turned many of us on to the wonderful sound of Hawaiian steel guitar. I was no exception. With his lovely version of Yellow Roses and his take on the classic Chloe, Gabby showed a new audience just why he was such a musical giant.
I've put together a package for this song which includes a note-for-note transcription of Gabby's performance, tabbed and notated for both 8-string C13 (Gabby's tuning) and 6-string C6 (both are included). Also in the package are a Tabledit file, rhythm track, original version mp3, and a 17-minute video outlining some important performance notes. This song sounds simple to play, but Gabby's mastery is the reason--he employs some very adept technique here.
If you haven't heard the song before, here is a version I recorded, although it is not a note-for-note rendition of Gabby's, but rather an homage: Chloe
The cost of the package is $9.95.
