Chord Subs, Original Songs, & The Simpsons

Magic Mike is back! And he brings some juicy music theory, a "Sweet and Sour" original song, and THE SIMPSONS! The guys begin the lesson by revisiting the chords for this week's song writing challenge and asking Mike "What the Heck? And how dare you!" After a healthy dose of music theory, they each share their original songs. They follow it up with an awesome little giveaway, and Aldrine wraps up the show by finally sharing his process for arranging the Simpsons theme song.
