A Chat with Abe (ah-bay)

This week, the guys are joined by special guest Abe who spreads some ukulele aloha with his teaching and ukulele podcast. They answer a ton of questions, ranging from fingernail length to ukulele neck length. Aldrine and Abe offer their best advice for memorizing songs and playing barre chords. The guys wrap up the lesson by asking Abe a few questions of their own.

Aldrine and the gang were also featured as guests on Abe's Ukulele Podcast, too.
