Lesson Description

We're back to our regular installments of Thursday Live Lesson. First up, a question about harmonies allows Aldrine to geek out with music theory while he explains how to find them and how to use them in solos. Next, Aaron runs with the baton and answers a question about practicing and pain, while Aldrine figures out the strumming pattern for a specific song. A question about baritone ukuleles, sparks a controversial conversation that ultimately ends with the freshly coined term "Uke-in-law". The guys also discuss some of the decisions behind the content on UU, and some of the unseen restrictions. We finish off with some exciting announcements about future UU plans.
