Ukulele Circles, Recording Yourself, & Upcoming Shows

This week, we're getting personal, and talking about You. Specifically, we're discussing using DAWS, and Recoding Techniques that fit you, and how you may try to emulate someone else's style, but you will still sound like you. Before the boys jump into staying true to You, they welcome Aaron back and talk about starting an Ukulele Circle/Club. They also explain some quick strap options, and describe the Banjo Uke and Tahitian Ukulele's Characteristics. The team tops up the podcast with some announcements on future shows, and quick recaps on Aaron and Aldrine's respective trips.
