You are invited to sing and play along to our arrangement of Haole Hula – the FREE Fan Club’s “Song of the Month” for October. This hapa haole song (Hawaiian style music with English words) was composer R. Alex Anderson’s favorite of the more than 100 songs he wrote. In spite of the worldwide popularity of his song Lovely Hula Hands (which you can also learn to play), the song Haole Hula expresses his love for his island home.
My arrangement of Haole Hula with I Wanna Rest Strum is in the key of C and uses 11 chords. It is perfect for intermediate to advanced ‘ukulele players who want to build their repertoire.
Schedule private webcam lessons to learn to play the song from wherever you live.
