Long before the discovery of Hawaiian steel guitar, there was Hawaiian slack-key guitar. Slack-key is a distinctly Hawaiian style of playing – the term coming from the technique of “slacking” or lowering the string pitch to achieve a major chord. Slack-key was the direct forerunner of steel guitar. The great slack-key artists can be identified by their unique individual styles – and Sonny Chillingworth is one of them! Some things don’t have to be explained – or can’t be – like why you fall in love – or what happens to you when you hear slack-key! From our friends at Lehua Records.
