Anchoring vs Floating, Strumming to Picking, and Ukulele Fanboy to Ukulele Friends

To Anchor or not to Anchor, that is the question on this Week's Live Lesson. Do you anchor, do you float, do you wear your hat forward, or do you wear it the RIGHT WAY? The guys answer all these questions and give some tips on how to switch from Strumming to Picking. Along the way the also talk about beef stew, 80's arm wrestling movies, and going from fanboy to friends.
