UU Podcast Ukulele’s Biggest Misconceptions | The Ukulele Underground Podcast #86



Budget Ukulele Price Range, Improvising, and Curly Wood​

It's a special Aldrine and Kahai show at home. Because Aaron is taking a break this week, Kahai throws some hard hitting questions at Aldrine like what musicians would he want to see use uke more, and what are the biggest misconceptions of the ukulele? After tackling those spicy questions, Aldrine answers a Tennis question, and shows off a lovely gift from a member. The duo also answer questions about multi headed instruments, improvising, and if curl in wood actually affects the sound? Hopefully the UU Team will make a recovery, and be back together by next week.

"Is the ukulele easy?" It takes time and effort and if you have no musical background, it is not easy.
