Pickups, Pull-offs, and Performing

This week on Thursday Live Lesson, the guys begin by talking about a luthier refusing to install a specific pickup. The conversation meanders toward finding experienced luthiers, brave DIY-ers, and broken instruments that still sound great. Aldrine answers a few technique related questions before going off on another ukulele tangent. The guys also talk about a few amazing female ukulele players before offering tips on stage presence.
