. . . at the Strum Shop in Roseville, CA was superb. Since I haven't seen Dom for quite a while, I knew this was gonna be a treat. Attendance was great for a small venue and the audience was really in tune with his playing. The first half was a solo set with Dom performing a lot of Jake's compositions like Blue Roses Falling, Granma's Groove and Me and Shirely T. The second half, he was accompanied by guitarist Steve Skidgel and re-known musician and luthier Bill Griffin. They played songs from other genres and ukulele artists like AG, Troy Fernandez (Ka'au Crater Boys), Byran Tolentino as well as a couple of Hawaiian mele. Steve's and Bill's playing was the perfect accompaniment and their playing blended well with Dom's ukulele.

Thanks Danny, and everyone. We had a great time. The Strum Shop is a great place for a small intimate show.

Here is Europa

Most of the songs from my solo set have already been posted in some fashion so I decided to just assemble some pieces from various songs into one video.

That has to be one of the best performances I have seen on the ukulele! Congrats Dominator!

Great rendition. Sorry I couldn't break away to attend.

The mike stand placement kept me from answering this one for my self; are you using a flat pick on Europa? Sounded a bit too clear for felt and since your strumming at about 3:00 minutes looked very relaxed, I'm also wondering if you had a thumb puck. Or maybe no pick at all?

Inquiring minds.... In any case, very expressive playing.

Pretty sure Dom mentioned it, he was using a flat pick.

On some songs I use the nail of my index finger as a pick (I have figerglass nails) and on others I use a flat pick. For Europa I used a pick and then just palm it and use my index finger to strum the octaves.
