Ernest Ka'ai's works

Arranged for ukulele by Choan Gálvez

Ernest Ka’ai (1881–1962), considered by many to have been the foremost ukulele authority of his time, published a series of ukulele method books such as The Ukulele, A Hawaiian Guitar and How to Play It (1906, revisado en 1910) y The Ukulele and How It’s Played (1916).

Most of the pieces included in those books have been popularised in John King’s arangements included in his book Famous Solos & Duets for the ‘Ukulele. Hereby I present some of my own arrangements, created with didactic intentions.

  • Ernest Ka'ai's El recuerdo
    Arrangement by Choan Gálvez of one of the pieces included in the 1916 edition of The Ukulele and How It's played. Thought for low G, also apt for reentrant tuning.
