Slack Key Legend Uncle Sol with Chance
"A Slack in the Key of Integrity" is my personal statement. Recorded live to 2-tack without overdubs, etc. It wasn't even planned, I turned the recorder on and figured out the songs to play as I went along. The first night I turned on the recorder with 3 mikes: one on the acoustic(not acoustic-electric) guitar, one for vocals and one room mike and played what was on my mind. Recording in this way would make it impossible to overdub or fix mistakes in pitch or fingering (integrity). All the original songs except for "More in Love With You" were not written with Slack Key in mind but they adapted well to the format. In Traditional Hawaiian music and Slack Key the one or two verses are repeated and rarely do songs have a bridge. I tried to follow that while imposing a more western feel with travis picking and Delta Blues scales.
