UkeTalk: I Like You!
It's been a while since we've had a chance to poke around on Kevin Crossett's UkeTalk site. In addition to being the host of UkeTalk, Kevin owns GuitarSam, a music store in Montpelier, VT, and builds Kepasa Ukuleles. (Craig Robertson is the lucky owner of a Josephine soprano, so we'll let him chime in with a word or two about his little lady.)
Much to our great delight, we made a wonderful discovery on the UkeTalk discussion forum. In the Tabs & Lessons forum, we learned that Geoff Davis will be posting his chord solos to the Blue Stone Folk School site. Geoff, as everyone knows, is Governor of the Great State of Ukiana, and founder of the Key Strummers.
Geoff will be offering the solos at a modest price, with proceeds supporting Blue Stone. As a tease, he's made a free posting of his chord solo arrangement of Sol Ho'opi'i's "I Like You". We first fell in love with this tune by listening to Janet Klein. She's recorded it twice, on Come Into My Parlor and Put a Flavor to Love. We searched for the chords for some time in vain, so we're particularly grateful to Geoff for working it out. Here is the page where you will find the chord solo for "I Like You."
