About this title


The Hawaiian word polinahe means both "sweet, gentle music" and "narrow waisted." And kukima is the Hawaiian way to pronounce "dulcimer"... What better name for this sweet-voiced, gentle Appalachian folk instrument? This is the first-ever collection of classic Hawaiian & Polynesian music arranged for the Appalachian dulcimer - "Hi`ilawe," the essential Hawaiian song about an illicit love affair; "Tiare Tahiti," a beautiful Tahitian melody, King Kalakaua's immortal "Sweet Leilehua" - and many more. In standard notation and tablature, with notes on the style, information on the songs, and resources for further study. A CD with all of the music in the book is available separately.

About the Author:

Multi-instrumentalist Mark Nelson has been active in the folk, Celtic and world music scenes since the early 1970's. Considered one of the nation's premiere mountain dulcimer players-he won the National Championships in 1979-he is equally adept at guitar, ukulele, bass and various other instruments. His passion for Hawaiian slack key guitar led him to seek out and study with the masters of the vanishing art form. In 1997, Mark and revered Hawaiian musician Keola Beamer co-authored "learn to Play Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar," the first comprehensive tutorial for this gentle art form. After a lengthy touring career, Mark now hosts The Aloha Music Camp, a weeklong immersion into the music and culture of Hawaii with Hawaii's beloved Beamer family. (Aunty Nona Beamer recently honored him with the Hawaiian name "Kailana," which means "gently floating on the surface of the sea"-not a bad description of the sound of slack key guitar.) Acoustic Guitar Magazine dubbed his recent CD, "The Water is Wide", "achingly beautiful." Mark's other books include "Learn to Play Fingerstyle Solos for Ukulele" (Mel Bay), "The Complete Collection of Celtic Music for Appalachian Dulcimer" (Mel Bay) and "Getting Started in Computer Music" (Thompson Course Technology). Mark lives in Southern Oregon's beautiful Applegate Valley, where he maintains a small recording studio and writes about music and music technology for a number of publications.
