Barney Isaacs

The video below features Alvin K. "Barney" Isaacs, Jr., playing the song "Na Lani" written by his father, Alvin Kaleolani Isaacs, on solo electric console.

After speaking of his family's background in music and how he and his brothers were all steel guitarists, you hear him play "Analani E", also written by his father.

Just a fantastic story from a true master player of both acoustic and electric lap steel guitar.

Highly Recommended

A fantastic album of Barney's playing is found in Hawaiian Touch, and features 14 tracks of pure instrumental bliss.

Barney plays entirely in C6 (CEGACE) on acoustic Hawaiian resonator guitar and is joined by George Kuo on kihoalu, or Hawaiian slack key style guitar.

We highly recommend Hawaiian Touch to anyone who enjoys great playing, and wants to know what C6 can sound like in the hands of a modern master.
