Holding Your Ukulele, Soloing & Learning from Others
On this week's Live Lesson, the guys cover topics ranging from beginner to experienced (but keeping a beginner mindset). Aldrine talks about the nuances of holding your ukulele. He covers the fluid nature of thumb position, doing things the "lazy" way, and adapting to different circumstances. Next up, the guys discuss soloing and the different ways to improvise a solid solo. Since soloing & learning from others go hand in hand, they wrap up the lesson by talking about the benefits of playing with amazing musicians. Aldrine shares stories about his favorite ukulele sparring partner and getting schooled by the greats.
