Techniques Used in Lesson:
Can you believe it!? This month officially marks Episode 100 of Uke Lessons! That means, if you've been with us from the beginning, you've watched a new free ukulele lesson on the 1st of every single month for the past 100 continuous months (almost 8 and a half years!). To celebrate this momentous episode of Uke Lessons, we checked back with a bunch of our favorite uke players and lesson collaborators to create the ultimate ukulele collaboration: Seasons of Love, from the smash Broadway musical, RENT.
So many thanks are in order to EVERYONE who has helped Ukulele Underground to grow and thrive over the years - without you, UU wouldn't be the wonderful, creative, supportive community that is.
