Playing while Sitting, Playing while Standing, Double Course Ukes & STRAPS
To Strap or Not to Strap, that is the question. This week's podcast is all about Straps: playing with them and playing without; the pros and cons; and the different types of Straps. Before the podcast ends, the guys also get in some questions about Double Course Ukuleles (5-8 String Ukuleles).
P.S. A Special Ukulele Giveaway is announced.
