Maori Brown Eyes

There are certain songs in Hawaiian music that work very well for and are embraced by slack key guitarists. Maori Brown Eyes is one of those.

It’s an easy piece, but with much room to improvise and run licks. It’s also great on the ‘ukulele, as shown by Troy Fernandez on his Hawaiian Style ‘Ukulele album.

Here’s my tab of the melody in C. Very basic, but a great frame for building a solo arrangement or practicing precise timing with a metronome.

I’m an ‘ukulele artist from Honoka’a, Hawai’i, where I run this site from a little plantation house in the jungle. I’ve taught workshops internationally, made Herb Ohta Jr. laugh until he cried, and once borrowed a uke to jam with HAPA onstage in my boardshorts. More about me
