Blue Hawaii

Here is one of my fave’s.

I had to develop it for a Luau set list our group was putting together for two engagements. I settled on the Key of G. I had found it twice in published song books in the Key of C, but didn’t like either arrangement.

The pdf document attached has each chord box over the word for the changes. If we could croon like Elvis, we could play this song veeerrrrryyyy sloooooowwwwwly like he did for the title track song of the movie, Blue Hawaii. However, since I can’t do it justice, I just try to play it at a tempo that makes it sound soft and wistful. It’s an interestingly full Key of G, too, with many of the 7ths and minors thrown in for compliments.
