Ukulele Wood, Original Songs, and Hot Sauce

On this week's Live Lesson, you're watching Hot Ones. It's the show with hot questions and even hotter strings. Just kidding, the guys didn't talk about strings but they did chow down on some hot popcorn chicken and spam musubis. Of course we couldn't have a fun and weird episode without our favorite Magic Mike in the house. Before the feast, the guys talk about ukulele wood types and the most difficult solo ukulele songs. They also share their vastly different original songs. Aldrine starts America's newest dance crazy with his tune, while Kahai makes a rare appearance with an acoustic slack key original, and Aaron brings it home (home on the range) with his own country song. Finally the guys close out the episode by trying some of the hottest hot sauces available.
