UU Podcast Fingerpicking & Fingerstyle & Chord Melody, Oh My! | The Ukulele Underground Podcast #91

Techniques as Genres & Private Lesson Etiquette​

What is the difference between Fingerpicking, Fingerstyle and Chord Melody? With Fingerpicking being thrown around as a catch-all term, we ask Aldrine what his definition of Fingerpicking is and how is it different from Fingerstyle? The guys go deep with the definitions of these terms, and where the terms may have originated as trends. Wanting to break into ukulele, someone asks Aldrine what size they should start with. Aldrine then gives his list of Do's and Don'ts for Private Lessons. The team explains the New Private Lessons, and the changes to Live Coaching. At the end of the podcast, a Songwriting Challenge Winner is picked.
