Aldrine also demonstrates three levels of utilizing inversions/chord shapes, and keeping a relaxed form while playing.

    This week, we're getting personal, and talking about You. Specifically, we're discussing using DAWS, and Recoding Techniques that fit you, and how you may try to emulate someone else's style, but you will still sound like you. Before the boys jump into staying true to You, they welcome Aaron back and talk about starting an Ukulele Circle/Club. They also explain some quick strap options, and describe the Banjo Uke and Tahitian Ukulele's Characteristics. The team tops up the podcast with some announcements on future shows, and quick recaps on Aaron and Aldrine's respective trips.

    After almost a whole year, Magic Mike has made his triumphant return to teach us with Great Power Chords comes Great Responsibility (or something like that). Before we dive into Power Chords (what they are, how you use them, and how they can help with key changes), Mike tells us about real podcast listeners who visited him, and  answers if they carry Baritones at the Music Store. The guys also discuss whether there is enough Koa Wood, and explain alternatives to endangered or hard to get wood. Tonal Quality, Music Recommendations, and even some tangents on DDR and Charisma points are all examined and reviewed on this week's podcast.

    You might not know, but we're actually Big Bob's Burgers Fans. Before we sing praises for the small indie cartoon, Aldrine divulges how many ukes he has, we give suggestions for string slipping, and we discuss what musical groups influenced UU. The team also gives advice for 16th note practices, Singing while Playing, and starter ukuleles. We learn what is the likely culprit of a "squeaky" string, and what exactly is a guitalele? The podcast is finished with the guys reminding everyone that there are no Private Lessons, Jam or Live Coaching Next week, but there is a special BB themed UU+ Solos.
