Tune in to get up on tunes

Have you imagined yourself ripping off hot riffs but the closest you've gotten to that is playing air guitar? Help is on the way.

A new television program, "Eazy Tunes," hosted by teens Erin Chang and Kenji Matsuda, has lined up six celebrities to help you learn to play a dozen songs on the guitar.

The shows air 5:30 p.m. Wednesdays, beginning tomorrow, on the Education Channel II (Oceanic channel 56 on Oahu). The programs are repeated twice the following weekend, at 9 p.m. Saturdays and 5:30 p.m. Sundays.

Kicking off the series is guest "Uncle Harry" Koizumi. Lehua Kalima of Na Leo Pilimehana appears Oct. 23; Kelly Boy Delima of Kapena, Oct. 30; Keali'i Kaneali'i of Hapa, Nov. 6; Teresa Bright, Nov. 13; and Jason Scott Lee, Nov. 20.

Guests talk with Chang and Matsuda about themselves and their music. Then the co-hosts themselves learn to play the songs and help you get attuned.
