View Full Version : Got a package from the U.U. guys today + a review of the new solo dvd

I ordered a shirt and their new DVD a couple days ago.
I had to get the shirt so I can represent at the upcoming Jake concert, and the dvd because I figured it would help me out.


the personalized note:


Now onto the DVD review:


The Nintendo packaging is pretty sweet and adds a nice touch.
On the inside ^ you can see they give you scale charts for some awesome soloing references.


-The menu screens are easy to navigate and have awesome background music playing while you make a selection.
-The video quality is amazing, and the locations Mr. G teaches at makes you jealous.
-Aaron's awesome video editing is present throughout the entire dvd.
-Just like the lessons and uke minutes, the dvd has great visuals of chord and scale progressions.
-As usual Aldrine fully explains everything he teaches.
-The dvd takes just enough time to explain each technique. Not too long for intermediate+ players and not too short for the beginner.
-Sam and Juno join Aldrine for his soloing seminar, where he busts out his teaching skills. he writes on a white board and involves the class.
-There is also a play-along that goes through the 3 scales that Aldrine covers in the video, with visuals alongside.
-Like always, the outtakes leave you laughing along with the U.U. crew's antics.

Overall a great video for beginners, as well as intermediate players that want to step their solo game up.

If you fall into one of those categories and are hesitating to pull the "order" trigger, go for it, you wont be dissapointed.
