Straps, Dynamics, and Low G
On this week's Live Lesson, the guys get into a lengthy discussion about straps. They talk about using straps, various types of straps and even strap accessories. Once they are all strapped out, the guys move on to strumming dynamics. They discuss some of the complexities behind strumming before moving on to Low G ukuleles. Aldrine explains when he chooses to play a low G and why he tends to prefer high G ukes instead. The fellas finish up the lesson with a unique conversation about two string tremolos.
