Wahine Ilikea (means fair skinned woman). Written in 1975 by Dennis Kamakahi for the beauty of the mountains above Kamalo, Moloka'i. Dennis' webpage is located at www.denniskamakahiproductions.com
Recorded with 3 tracks: 1 vocal, 1 uke strumming, and 1 uke background instrumental.
On the second version I added another track that has a guitar with an alternating bass line.
Update - 9/27 Here is an update to Wahine Ilikea with the Guitar bass line. I increased the bass and vocals and turned down the uke parts a little.
