(Click on the Lyric Sheet/Chord Chart to hear the song)

It's called "Moai" (Initiate's Anthem)and was inspired by my quest to join the Fraternal Order of Moai.

I'd like to thank Pablus and Kanekila for their help when I first came here to Tiki Central. They gave me lap steel advice and pointed me in the right direction with their great CDs and tips!

I'm playing everything on the recording, and I'm still basically a lap steel beginner, so yeah, it ain't perfect, but man I had a blast!

Thanks for listening.

Yeah, braddah.
That's it.

All it needs is the sound of record scratches and pops and the accompaniment of clinking glasses.

I think the steel sounds really good.

Thanks!

Turn it up a little, the record scratches are there!

I'll boost'em on later mixes.
