When should a player start to learn Theory? After the last divisive podcast, this week the team tries to remind everyone that they're offering OPINIONS (usually) more than facts. This Week's OPINION is that you should wait before really getting into Music Theory. The guys explain why they think this way and how you can start to investigate Music Theory. Other topics discussed are pickup brands, tremolo-ing on 2 strings, learning the fretboard, and who comes up with the Play Along Song Arrangements. UU also reveals their songs for the latest Songwriting Challenge along with announcing the upcoming Stream Schedule for the Holidays.
