I am the only one in the group who plays ʻukulele ... we have another who knows more Hawaiian ... that's how our kumu planned it ... one is into hula, so she will be adding hula ... and one guy plays guitar, so he follows me ... and another girl likes to sing ... nobody has written a song, so this one just happened ... so, it was meant to be ... based on our first assignment, the way we write, he could probably tell who would be good with who ... I can't even believe we wrote a song
