French Fry Grease, Adding Variety, Inversions and Trasposing

This week, the team eats Hot Sauces and has some Hot Announcements. Aldrine starts off the Live Lesson talking about changes to the Podcasts, changes to 1 on 1 Coaching, and the return of the UU+ Open Mics. Next, the guys dive right back into the Cliffhanger Question from last week. Aldrine gives suggestions on how to add "Spice" to the old and tired Island Strum. Aaron shares a heartwarming story about an Ukulele Club from a correctional facility, and how they changed songs to better reflect their experiences. The team tackles making inversions and transpositions easier to understand. Finally, Aldrine tries the Hot Sauces while answering questions about Angry Beavers, Stealth Tuners, and Practicing Scales. The podcast ends with a Student Review, and a Preview of the next UU+ Solo.
