Songs of all shapes and sizes
On this week's surprisingly focused Live Lesson, Aldrine answers a quick question before the guys unveil their original songs. Each of them faced a different set of challenges which shaped their songs in various ways. They talk about the need to write certain songs just to get it out, and the magic that can come from last minute projects. Aldrine shares an exciting announcement regarding his AGxAQ strings, and they wrap up the lesson with a quick discussion about the clawhammer technique.
