E Kuʻu Morning Dew ʻUkulele Tab by Eddie Kamae

sonsofhawaiiThere are few old-school Hawaiian bands better known than the Sons of Hawaiʻi. One of their most famous songs was written by ʻukulele legend Eddie Kamae and is called E Kuʻu Morning Dew. Here’s a tab.

With an original lineup of Gabby Pahinui, Eddie Kamae, David “Feet” Rogers, Joe Marshall, Moe Keale, and Rev. Dennis Kamakahi, the Sons were a who’s who of powerhouse Hawaiian musicians.

E Ku’u Morning Dew is one of frontman Eddie Kamae’s most famous songs. It has a repeating jazz sort of ii-V-I progression that is odd in Hawaiian music, but makes the song very easy to play.

This ʻukulele tab highlights the melody in the key of G and also throws in some strums to fill out the harmony. Play with a low-G string to reach all the melody notes.

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
