The Unknown - Kalei Gamiao - TAB

Back in February of 2012 I started the video tutorial series for Kalei Gamiao’s wonderful song called “The Unknown”. I had intended to create a tab to supplement the videos but just never seemed to be able to get around to it. Well, it’s finally done. I tried to organize the tab in sections that coincide with the videos.

I put the tab together in a rush and so I’m sure there are a few places where the tab is slightly different than what I play in my tutorial. It’s also different than Kalei’s HiSession and Hawaiian Musical Supply videos. It is simply not possible, for me anyway, to be able to re-create every triple strum and chunk that Kalei plays. The tab along with the videos or separately will provide more than enough substance to allow one to master the song.

The tab can be found on the Tabs page via the link at the top of this page.

Good luck and my apologies for taking so long to get it done.

Friday Night Street Stars - The Fountains at Roseville

Dominator has just completed the first of 4 summer performances at The Fountains at Roseville as part of the Friday Night Street Stars program.

Dominator & Friends (Steve Skidgel and Mark Chrisler) will be providing some fantastic ukulele and guitar music in the beautiful setting known as The Fountains at Roseville.

So bring the kids and come out and enjoy some great music. There are 2 other locations within the Fountains where other performers will be showing there stuff including a juggling act, as sax player and a crooner singing songs from the Rat Pack. I believe there is even a magic act that will be performing on select nights. Performances are from 7-9pm.

Hope to see you soon.

Dono dal Cielo 11th Anniversary

I got a last minute gig at Dono dal Cielo for Saturday, April 27 from 2-5pm. I recently played at their 11th Year Anniversary party with Steve Skidgel. Here is a little bit of Daniel Ho's "Pineapple Mango".

Tenors #009 and #011 Complete

The closeout of 2012 included completion of two long awaited tenor ukuleles. I have a couple more in the works and I need to build one for myself, hopefully in time for the Reno Ukulele Festival in April. If not, for sure in time for UWC in June. I’m not sure if I want to build an all Koa uke or maybe a figured maple body with a spruce or maybe a sinker redwood top. Decisions, decisions.
