Seeso, UWC, Capos, and Style Ingredients
Longtime friend and OG Member of the UU Community, Narciso "Seeso" Lobo joins us for this week's podcast. We start of the Live Lesson with an intro to Seeso, and an explanation of the Ukulele World Congress and the Brown County Ukulele Festival. Along the way, the gang reminisces about the online ukulele community, and take a walk down memory lane when Seeso introduced UU to Chicago. We catch up with what Seeso is currently working on, dive back to some of the original Ukulele Youtube Heavy Hitters. The tail end of the podcast is spent answering questions about Capos, Spruce/Koa wood combos, switching chords, and why ukuleles are traditionally strung with a High G.
