Dominator Ukulele Tabs: Official Index

I knew of Dominic “Dominator” Pieranunzio since before I started this website. His ukulele tabs were some of, if not THE first professional-quality ukulele transcriptions available on the web.

Over the years Dominator has continued to create new transcriptions, growing his library of work to over 100 fantastic tabs and song snippets. The hosting of his site went through several ownership changes, but his webpage always stayed online. Recently though, a new owner has switched the domain again. This time Dom’s original webpage wasn’t preserved.

The PDFs are still there thanks to the webmaster’s willingness to continue hosting them, but the source Powertab/Guitar Pro files, along with links, blog posts, MP3s, and MIDI audio snippets weren’t preserved. Since the PDFs are sort of hard to find and sometimes mistitled on the new site, I started a dialogue with Dominator after our podcast interview about creating a more accurate index for his work here on Live ʻUkulele that would include all of his content instead of just the PDFs.

Sorted in the original order from Dominator’s website, oldest to newest. I’ve styled the page a bit to make it reminiscent of Dom’s original look.
