Indian Songs, Aladdin, Fauxhammers, Sliding Chords, and Talented Families

Like the Dinosaurs, the UU Team is back for a new year and a new TLL Podcast! The guys answer a few questions about figuring out the key in a specific song, clawhammers, and sliding chords, but they inevitably find a way to get off course. Can you really call it a TLL Podcast if there aren't references to movies, cartoons and music? Luckily, at the end of the podcast they're able to wrestle the cart back on the track and set the guidelines for the next songwriting challenge.
