Today’s chat is with Geoff Skellams.  He plays some cool stuff:

“Afternoon Delight” – Bill Danoff (1975)

“The Redtail Hawk” – George Schroder (1975)

“Molehu” – Ozzie Katani

“Dragonfly” – A J Leonard

“Nanea Kou Maka I Ka Le'ale'a” – arrangement by Mark Kailana Nelson

And my attempt at fingerpicking was “Come Said the Boy” by Mondo Rock, written by Eric McCusker (1983)

The book Geoff mentions is Ozzie Kotani's book "Guitar Playing Hawaiian Style".
