The New UU Shop, Secret Santas, Cleaning Your Fretboard & 5/4 Time
This week, the guys are pulling out their red coats and growing their beards as they announce the opening of the UU Shop, and reveal who gets their secret Santa Songs. But before the reveals and announcements, the team answers questions about skin difficulties with fretwires, 5/4 time, and convincing your significant other that you should get a new ukulele. UU also tackles giving advice for learning new songs and how to approach getting sponsored by an ukulele company. We've been alluding to it and giving hints here and there, but the new UU Shop is finally open for business. Aldrine explains what is in the shop, and what is planned to come to the shop in the future. The podcast is topped off with the team showing their songs for the secret Santa Songwriting challenge. This is the last UU Live Stream of the year, so we hope everyone has a great Holidays, and we'll see you on January 7th, 2022!
