Fingerpicking Patterns, Feeling Rhythm, Instrumental Ukulele

Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme, Get on up it's Live Lesson Time! For the last Live Lesson of the Year, the UU Team has a new set up, but bringing it back to the fundamentals of feeling the beat. A student Review leads the guys to demonstrate how to play along without Strumming or Picking Patterns. Some Grammy Winning musicians are discussed before a question on Country Rhythm is tackled. Each UUer gives their top Ukulele Instrumental Albums and their top Jazz Albums. A winner for the Quote Contest is picked. The Podcast is topped off with the team's newest songs.

Reminder: We're taking a break for Christmas and New Years, but we'll be back in a couple weeks (January 7th). We hope you guys have a Safe Holiday, and a Happy New Year, and we'll see you guys when we come back!
