Student Review, Tiny Tim, and False Endings

This week, the guys offer feedback on a couple of student reviews. Aldrine shares some of his tips for playing parallel octaves, and Aaron (The Voice) gives some sound advice for singing while playing. A message from the chat get the guys talking about Tiny Tim and the misguided reputation of the ukulele. For the second half of the lesson, the boys debut their latest original songs from the song writing challenge. While the songs are wildly different, they all share false endings.
