Review – Million Miles Away – Jake Shimabukuro

Hippie Guy says:

I ordered this DVD thinking that it would be like Play Loud ‘Ukulele in the sense that you could actually watch Jake play his ‘ukulele. Million Miles Away is mostly full of shots that show behind the scenes of Jake’s tour in Japan. In this DVD you get a glimpse of Jake playing the background song every thirty seconds and that makes things kind of confusing. The last four songs are the only songs you can really watch Shimabukuro in.

The songs you see Jake play are good but Play Loud ‘Ukulele showcases his skills a lot better.
