Uke Teachers Tier List, Thumb Picks while Chunking, Acrylic Nails, and the Mandolele
Because the guys made their Top 5 Players List last week, this week they make their Uke Teachers Tier List. Find out which teachers are A Rank and which Teachers are SS. Aldrine also answers a question about chunking with a thumb pick and why people would choose to use a thumb pick. At the very end of the podcast Aldrine talks about the Mandolin, and an interesting Mandolin, Ukulele hybrid.
