It's been 15 years of Ukulele Underground, and this week we're back with the 3 uketeers. Aldrine starts off the lesson by explaining what the Private Lessons are, and how they're different from the Live Coaching Sessions. He also ask the audience for some feedback on the Private Lessons. Aldrine explains why they don't play weddings, and the UU team points out the value of good wedding musicians. Aldrine talks about playing in Europe, and the guys give tips for playing by ear, and feel.
