Maui Hawai'ian Sup'pa Man

Maui Hawai'ian Sup'pa Man by Del Beazley & Mel Amina immortalizes Maui, the mischievous demi-god and the great hero of Polynesian/Hawaiian folklore in song.

Del Beazley, also known as “THE BEAZ,” is a six-time Nä Hökü Hanohano Award-winning singer, songwriter, composer, and arranger. Coming from a musical family—both his parents and all his siblings have musical talents—Beazley learned to play the ‘ukulele at a very young age from his grandparents. Growing up in Makaha, Beazley was always surrounded by Hawaiian music, and drew influence from artists like The Sunday Mänoa, Gabe Kila, Reggie Berdon, and the Makaha Sons of Ni’ihau.

The song is typically done on the key of Am. This the key that IZ recorded his version in and is the most well know version.

The chord progression has the Andalusian cadence in the intro and verses Am G F E7. This is a common chord progression that is well worth learning. See the lessons on this common progression.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic!

I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
