Urkel, Bach, Muscle Memory, and Country Songs

What do Vegas, BBQ Sauce, and PipiKaula have to do with country music? Watch the podcast to find out. The guys are back this week to answer questions, review some students, and unveil their latest songs. A member asks the guys if learning songs will become faster, and once you learn a song how do you memorize it? This leads into a look behind the scenes of the UU+ Solos, and adding your own style to a song. The team gives advice for someone who's almost there, and someone who should maybe take a break. The podcast is topped off with the guys showing their "Country Songs".
