Here is a classic Hawaiian tune that should be part of any Hawaiian-style ‘ukulele player’s set list. With a great move to A7 in the middle of the verse and a slick cycle back to the root in resolving 7ths, it’s a great song to jazz up with extended chords. And of course the vamp has the timeless Bb – B – C walkup. All in all a super fun song.
Noho Paipai (Rocking Chair Hula) was popularized by Johnny Alemeida in the 40s. The original composer is not known.
