Gel Nails, Fingerpicks, Pedal points & the Songwriting Challenge
After a short break, Aaron, the Voice, rejoins the boys. On this week's podcast, the team discusses the pros and cons of Fake Nails, Gel Nails, and Fingerpicks. Aldrine gives examples of his own experiences with each choice. A UU+ member asks if they can string a Baritone to GCEA? The guys try to tackle a musical technique that they aren't familiar with. UU reveals their song submissions for the Challenge, and they remind everyone of the new things in the shop, the upcoming Virtual Concert and the Open Mic.
