Anime, Filipino Foods, Diminished Chords and Aldrine's Origins
As a famous Hare once said, "DO A TREMOLO!" This week the boys are back and giving their best advice for a sticky tremolo. Before they tackle that problem, the team answers important questions like what is the best anime, and what is your favorite Filipino food? They also discuss some real ukulele topics such as the diminished chord, stretching strings for open tunings, and how Aldrine is preparing for the upcoming concert. Kahai and Aaron show their Song Submissions for the Challenge (Aldrine's is coming soon), and pick the winner from the Member's Submissions.
