It’s over and I’m back. What an amazing week it was. Days and days of ‘ukulele and slack key guitar lessons, good food, and great people. I ended up teaching a few beginner ‘ukulele classes that went over fairly well it seemed. For me, the coolest new thing about this years camp was the appearance of a guy named James Hill. He is a great teacher, entertainer, player, and above all a nice guy. I was able to cram my learning schedule with as many of his classes as possible and took away some great concepts concerning jazz soloing, the triplet strum, mono strum, fiddle licks, and so much more.
I didn’t have the camera out much because there were classes to take and friends to catch up with, but I did get some shots:
Edit: a lot of the pictures disappeared off of wherever they were hosted.
Private lesson with James Hill
Uncle Ledward Kaapana bent the timing of every vamp he played on stage in some crazy way or another.
Thank you to all the teachers, students, kitchen help, and otherwise involved people that made this camp a blast – especially Keoki Kahumoku.
