Thumb Strums, Music Therapy, Baby Sharks, and Chunking, and Choosing the Right Tools
Ryan steps in to be the third "Color Commentator" for Today's Podcast. They fire off with a question about Strumming with your thumb like Jake. This brings up the idea of Choosing the Right Tool for the Job, and not Hammering a Nail with a Screwdriver. The podcast moves on to what does Music do for you, and Aaron asks the existential question, "Isn't all music, therapy?" Aldrine demonstrates some interesting percussive techniques, and helps a new member learn to chunk.
