I tried searching for this version's tabs on the forums, but I couldn't get anything. Of course, I know the Mana'o Company's version (thanks to Aldrine's lesson) but I really like Ekolu's version's opening. I like it because of how different it sounds, so could anybody give me a spare tab if they've got it?

Thanks in advance!
 
Hey, it's done by sean na'auao, not ekolu.

Here's a sick acoustic version:


And his other you're talking about version.


Maybe this will help...

Rod, just an FYI . . . Sean used to be a member of TMC.
 
Thank's for schooling me again Danny!

I'm just sayin that the specific version 12fret was looking for was definitely not Ekolu. When you search for "drop baby drop" on some shady music download things it comes up with Ekolu. iTunes quickly pointed out that it was Sean though.

Yup . . . definitely Sean and not Ekolu, although Ekolu has great Uke riffs by Lukela Keala on their songs.
 
Thanks for the tab man! And I never knew it was Sean's version - I'm a huge Sean Na'auao fan.

BTW I got the song years ago, and it for some reason had Ekolu. Though now I think about it, it does sound different than Ekolu. Strange how I never questioned it.

Thanks again though!
 
hey guys, i just got into playing uke less than a month ago and i found this tutorial to be really useful for me. it's quite similar in terms of tabs to the one above.

anyway i really love playing this song any other songs like it that you guys will recommend?

Check out the Beach 5 vids on HISessions . . . Christian Yrizzary on uke (used to be Ho'onua, I think).

I did! He's another good one. There's more ukulele in the Beach 5 stuff than in the Ho'onua days. Didn't you post their HiSession a little bit ago?

I've been trying to catch up on all of them.
