Vocal Range, Backing Tracks & Pickup Suggestions

This week, we're Looping back to pickup recommendations. At the start of the podcast, Aldrine has a very important request for our global audience. Next, the guys give their best tips for figuring out your vocal range. Someone asks who wrote the latest Uke Lesson song, and another viewer asks where they can find looping or backing tracks? Aldrine gives his pickup recommendations and the team tries to help someone who wants to try Authentic Hawaiian Ukuleles, but cannot easily access them. The audience ask if Aaron will ever be on camera, and why Kahai wears an apron in the intro? The podcast is topped off with the guys picking their Secret Santa Songwriting Challengers, Reminding Everyone of the New Christmas Songs, and giving an update to the last livestream of the year.
