UU Podcast Woodshed: The Musician’s Hyperbolic Chamber | The Ukulele Underground Podcast #89

Tiny Ukes, Best Looping Practices, and 3 Stringed Ukes​

Musicians say you need to lock yourself in a Woodshed and Practice to get better. We think the term should be updated to training in a Hyperbolic Chamber. This week, Aaron ask Aldrine what Woodshedding means to him, and what are examples of when he locked himself in the Hyperbolic Chamber. Aldrine talks about isolating and reflection, and how that helped him grow and create his own brand of music. The guys also share their own experiences of practicing and learning from music outside of the ukulele. The UU team ends the podcast by answering how to get started with looping, how is it to play a sopranino, and what do you think about the 3 stringed ukulele?
