I’ve made a pact with myself that I’m going to buy a tenor KoAloha Sceptre at the next available opportunity. I don’t care how ridiculous they are, or how little I need or deserve another uke. Of course, I make that pact and the next Sceptre seller refuses to ship outside the US.
A big part of the reason I want one is that Alvin Okami is just such a great myth-maker. How could you resist after watching this extra nugget from The KoAloha Story?
He ends the section with a lovely version of This Is My Song by Charlie Chaplin (it starts at about 12:30) and it’s that version that I’ve written up. There are a bunch of useful chord variations and inversions in the arrangement that are well worth making note of.
If you want to be part of the follow-up to The KoAloha Story, you can have your own KoAloha story told in Gary San Angel’s next project.
