    On yesterday’s podcast we announced that we’re having Kalei Gamiao on as a special Guest on next week’s podcast. Because we want to ask Kalei a lot of questions, we’re going to postpone the Songwritting Challenge Due Dates. The New Dates are

    If you heard the podcast, you should be excited for what Aaron has planned. Me and Aldrine (like the poor students that we are) will probably wait to the last minute.
    If you write a song, we may invite you to be on a future podcast to hang out and talk about your song. Only if you’re comfortable. I hope to see you guys come up with something. We’re always excited to see your songs.

    Aloha,
    -Kahai

    great job! Just like with Aldrine’s song, your song made me start craving some Kona beer.

    Hello:

    This is Hamsini’s piece for Challenge #19. She calls this song “Mystery of Sherlock Holmes” (disclaimer: she has not read any Sherlock Holmes stories / books yet!). She has tried to incorporate all the new things she has been learning – alternate tuning (open A minor), some finger picking, playing notes while barring.

    Thanks
    Aswin
