Solid Body Electric Ukuleles, Maple Syrup Candy, and Thumb Picks

This Week, the gang delivers powerful Psychic Divination on the future of the Solid Body Electric Uke. Call the Toll Free Number NOW to find out what's in store for these instruments. Aldrine states the changes in playing to accommodate the progress of Solid Body Ukes, Aaron divines who it will be that will take the instrument to new heights, and Kahai forecast what builders need to do to make the Electric Ukulele better than ever. The team takes a break from being psychics to open and react to maple candies they received from the community. Some positive feedback is offered to a Student Review and a Song Challenge Submission. Members ask how to choose a thumb pick, and where the thumb pick should be positioned on your finger? A winner is chosen for the Songwriting Challenge, and a new Challenge is set. The lesson is topped off with a discussion about Popular Karaoke Songs in Asia, New Lessons Announcements, the Merch Store Restock, and a Holiday Coupon Code.
