Played a wedding yesterday, always a lot of fun and a good warmup for the hands. I got home late and just as I got ready to go to sleep I picked up the guitar for one last tune and ran through "Moani Ke `Ala" inspired by the Gabby Band.

Had so much fun with it I decided to set up the camcorder and a mic to shoot a video, and here it is.

Written by Prince William Pitt Leleiohoku, the song is one of romantic longing, but for some reason it's just a lot of fun to play in a raggy uptempo style.

The video was shot on a Flip Mino HD, audio recorded using an Audio-Technica AT3035 about 24" from the bridge. The audio is unprocessed, no reverb, EQ, or compression. The video and audio were synced using Avidemux. The guitar is a Kathy Wingert Model E.
