Hawaiian Steel Guitar

The Hawaiian steel guitar is played flat on the lap with a steel bar instead of the fingers, hence the name steel guitar. It was invented in the late 1800s in Hawaii and is instantly recognizable with it’s lilting gentle sound.

In this program Chris Merwin presents four different steel guitars, each with it’s own unique sound and appearance. One of them was made in 1927, is made of metal, and is chrome plated. It has three speaker cones made of aluminum inside of it which resonate and make it louder. Another is made of all Hawaiian koa wood (the koa tree grows only in Hawaii), and the neck is hollow. This is highly unusual as no stringed instrument in the world has a hollow neck except these special steel guitars. All of the steel guitars in this show are historically important in the history of the instrument and they are all from the 1920s and extremely rare. Cultural and historical information is given.

About Chris Merwin

Chris began studying the guitar at the age of 12 and was performing and teaching by the time he was 17. He studied bluegrass flat picking on acoustic guitar at 18, and learned to play many styles including blues, rock, heavy metal, and some classical. At 21 he began to play the Hawaiian steel guitar, and at 24 branched out by picking up the Colombian tiple, Irish bouzouki, Turkish saz, Arabic oud, studying classical Arabic music for three years with a master from Iraq. He later picked up the Portugese guitar, Turkish yali tambur, and mandolin, and steel drum. He specializes in Caribbean music playing both reggae and calypso and taught himself the steel drum. In his late 20s he began studying the Japanese shakuhachi flute and it took over his musical life. Since that time it has been his main instrument of focus and he is now highly classically trained on it playing both Buddhist meditation and classical music, as well as folk songs. He also studied Hawaiian music in Hawaii and at home in NY, and is steeped in American roots music-blues, country, gospel, and bluegrass. He offers shows in all these styles as well shows of popular cover songs from the 40s through the 90s. He has played in many original bands since the age of 14 and has been composing his own music since that time. In addition to his musical studies he began travelling the world to study traditional music at the source and to learn more about the world we live in. His travels have taken him to Tibet (twice), Egypt, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Japan (many times), China (twice), Holland, Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, and all over America and Canada. He studied shakuhachi in Japan with one of the eras greatest masters, and he studied oud in Egypt. He has performed at the National Cherry Blossom Festival, the United Nations, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the New York and Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, as well as countless libraries, arts councils, and schools.
