    If I were to make a video I'm afraid it would pale in comparison to yours. It would be a no-production version with just me and my uke with no solo in the middle. If you have a tab for that solo I'd love to see it! It sounded great and it really made the song.

    Money can't buy happiness but it can buy a uke which is basically the same thing.

    Ukes are a lot like potato chips. It's hard to stop with just one!

    i saw the light solo tabbed.jpg

    I don't have a real nice tabbed version. I usually just make a rough tablature so that I can practice. I'm including a photo of it. The top two lines are the melody and the bottom two lines comprise the harmony line, which I recorded separately. I left out the fancy part of the solo because frankly it's beyond my ability level, but I think this simplified version sounds fine. The solo part was challenging, but I really wanted to include it in my cover.

    Thanks for the tab!

    Well done John, love your takes on these old classics. Nice production with the harmony vocals...and that solo!

    Very nice John, it’s a fantastic start to my Sunday morning.
    A day without playing uke is a day not well lived.

    I “just” saw him in Albuquerque. November 2018
    He was fabulous, funny, very witty and did mostly covers but left room for those golden oldies.

    Thanks, Sharpshin. I hope he makes it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

    Long time fan of Todd's going back to the early 70's. I've seen him several times and he's one of my favorite musicians.
