UU Podcast Our Biggest Buyer’s Remorse | The Ukulele Underground Podcast #94

Must Have Accessories, Fast Strumming & Beginner Books​

Being the last podcast before Thanksgiving (and Black Friday), Aldrine shares what accessories are great buys, and which ones have caused him buyer's remorse. The guys also cover why you should learn different chord positions, their opinions on wound C, how to strum faster, and good books for beginner uke players. A few members of the underground ask how much they should pay for a uke upgrade, and what can they do to replace a bad pickup? Aldrine tops up the podcast with a story of two Bobs, and how awesome the uke community is! Remember, no Jam this week, but we'll be back next Monday for a new podcast!
