Double Stops, Swinging with a Metronome, and Songwriting Challenge #16

Because the Podcast is "Totally Music and Ukulele Focused", the guys talk about Double Stops aka Harmonies, Swinging with a Metronome, and set a new Songwriting Challenge. If the podcast wasn't so "Music Focused", then the crew might talk about Video Games, Song Inspired Alcohols, a Hot Sauce Race, and Aldrine's Full English Breakfast. Luckily for all the viewers, UU always stays on topic. 😉
