In this week's Live Lesson, the guys talk about Wristy Business when holding the uke, Aaron's Canon in D dilemma, and the Ukulele Golden Boy (AKA Jake Shimabukuro). First up, Aldrine answers a question about the One String-Two String technique, then he talks about the basics of holding the ukulele and acceptable wrist movement. Next, Aldrine shares an exercise he has been using to practice his soloing. A question about smoothing out a chord switch, leads to Aldrine gushing over Jake's genius, while an incredulous Kahai admires Jake's graciousness. The guys wrap up with a conversation about analyzing songs, before going over some quick announcements.
