Singing while Playing, Fingerpicking, Pedals, and Hatsune Miku

What would an Ukulele sound like as a Japanese Virtual Idol? This isn't a question anyone has asked, but the guys find out on this week's podcast. They also legitimately answer a question about intermediate singing while playing, and help someone with a fingerpicking student review. The back half of the podcast is spent showcasing pedals (including a very rare and special pedal). In the end, we announce the winners of the last Songwriting Challenge, and pick who we will gift songs for our Secret Santa Song Challenge.
