8 String Ukuleles, String Buzzing, Slack Key Music, and Aldrine's Concert/Soprano String Sets
Voltron is back baby! With Voltron at full power, the guys start off with an easy question asking if Aldrine plays other Ukulele Sizes in his down time? It gets harder when the guys try to diagnose a buzzing problem without seeing the ukulele firsthand. They then review a student playing an 8 string ukulele. Aldrine also gives a teaser to his concert and soprano string sets, and give recommendations for 8 string ukulele artist and slack key artist.
