Learn how you can Transpose easily by playing Simon with the Circle of 5ths. A question leads the guys to discuss Transposing, 5ths, Movable chords, and even some 90's Games. Another member asks for the Magic Secret to Pinky Mutes. When someone asks Aldrine if he plays low G, he gives some hidden examples that people may not be aware of. At the end of the podcast, Aldrine spends some time talking about unique ukuleles in his collection and where around the world they may be.
