Recording Order, Jam Customs, Ukulele Groups & Intro Songs

Do you want a Jam BFF? This week the guys list their Do's and Don'ts for a good Date Jam. Before they show you how to be a smooth Jam Partner, the team answers a question about the recording order of instruments, and explain why it's usually better to record the Rhythm Section first. UU tackles what you can do when the group you're playing with starts to become "repetitive". A very serious question of, "what uke would you be?" is asked. Topping off the hour, the guys play their songs, make a call to action for uke clubs, and remind everyone of next week's guest and giveaway. You don't want to miss it!
