This is one of my personal favorites, pure and sweet. Slack Key at its finest!! Dennis is one of Hawaii's most prolific and romantic songwriters and a top favorite Hawaiian entertainer for the past 25 years.

Starting with the "Sons of Hawaii" at age 20, Dennis has written well over 400 songs of which many have become hula classics and are danced by our hula halaus (schools) world wide. Songs like Pua Home, Wahine 'Ilikea and Koke'e, my personal favorites, just to name a few. This album is a part of the Slack Key Master Series produced by George Winston.

In January 1999, he released his 2nd album "Ohana" on Dancing Cat Records, also produced by George Winston. This one features Dennis' nineteen year-old son, David on ukulele. It instantly placed in the top 20 on the Billboard World Music charts within a month of its release. (then shot up to #five)!!

You can hear samples on CD30. "Slack Key Guitar" is traced to the Mexican and Spanish Cowboys who were hired to teach Hawaiian Paniolo how to handle an over abundance of cattle. They would play softly to them at night to quiet them. Hawaiians adapted the guitar to their culture, developing unique tunings and sounds from the instrument.
