Harmonics, Opihi Man, and Recording Audio
The UU Team is practicing Safe Social Distancing by doing the podcast from their homes. This means the podcast looks and sound different, but this doesn't stop the guys from answering your questions! The podcast starts off with breaking down harmonics and the "Touch" you need to play them. Aldrine gives some tips on playing Opihi Man. Then the rest of podcast is spent giving advice on recording Audio, and some of the recording problems people should avoid. We hope everyone watching and listening is staying safe and healthy.
