The Flood, Circle of Fifths and Ukulele Upkeep
This week's Thursday Live Lesson is a bit of a mixed bag. The guys cover a variety of topics including the recent flooding on Kauai, how to use the circle of fifths, and general ukulele upkeep. Aldrine explains how to identify the chords in any given key, using a number of different methods. Kahai chimes in with his own chord-key memory aid. While bio-major-Aaron suggest a nifty way to spruce up the circle of fifths diagram. Aldrine gives a rundown for ukulele maintenance, and shares a hilarious story about his first tour on the mainland. The guys also discuss how humidity can affect your ukulele before ending with some quick Q&A.
