UU Podcast Tremolo through the Ages | The Ukulele Underground Podcast #81

Tremolo Alternatives, Flamenco Ukulele, & the Master of None​

We hope you're hungry for some Tremolo action because in this Week's podcast, Aldrine will demonstrate every alternative to picking with your thumb nail. The guys discuss the trade-offs to each style of tremolo, and how it is a specialty technique. Aldrine answers questions about finger pain, and Flamenco Ukulele Players. The UU team also talk about learning from Masters and learning that there is always someone better than you.
