Tremolos, Jazzy Chords, 6/8 Time, and Bon Dance Songs

We have quite an assortment of topics and questions for this week's Live Lesson. Aldrine starts it off by giving some feedback on a Student Review. The guys then get a question about protecting your Thumb Nail, and memorizing Jazz Chords. In a quick fire round, Aldrine shows how to do the Tremolo, and what 6/8 time means. At the end of the podcast, the guys show their latest songs for the songwriting challenge.

Reminder: We're taking a break next week for Thanksgiving. We will be back December 5th.
