Chord Melodies, Nail Care, and Tremolos
No meatball subs today. This week's Live Lesson is full of questions, and the guys came focused and ready to power through them. First up, Aldrine explains his thought process when arranging chord melodies, and he explains why he prefers to use the term "ukulele solos". Aaron asks Aldrine a few questions about his nail care routine, which leads the guys into a discussion on chunking technique. Aldrine also tackles multiple questions regrading the tremolo before ending with some info about 1 on 1 coaching and private lessons.
