Um Actuallys, Different Strumming Positions, The Golden Rule of Jams, and a Thanksgiving Song Challenge

Um Actually, Kahai is not going to be here next week, but that doesn't mean the show can't go on. Aldrine answers a question about strumming and fingerpicking in different locations. A question about the Do's and Don'ts of Jamming sends the guys down a steep rabbit's hole. They share the Golden Rule of Jamming (and of life), and after they crawl out of the rabbit's hole, they set the guidelines for the new song challenge.
