Tourist Stops, Relaxed Playing & Song Reviews

It's a relaxed podcast this week. Because Joe Souza joined last week, the guys turned up the professionalism. Now that it's back to only the UU team, we can make all the 90's, cartoons, and anime references we want. Speaking of 90's, we start by discussing other uke podcast that don't make 90's cartoon references. A member asks the team for Hawaii tourist stop recommendations catered to ukulele players. The guys suggest factory tours, music shops, and local shows. When giving a Student Review, UU argues that playing relaxed can make your jazz playing sound more authentic. The gang reviews the latest Songwriting Challenge Submissions before announcing the winners for that, and the September Ukulele giveaway.

If you are part of a club, and you want UU to do a workshop/concert with your club, email:
