One-of-a-kind Solos, Swinging Rhythm, and Air Ukulele
On this week’s Thursday Live Lesson (AKA the Receptacle of Useless Knowledge), Magic Mike graces us with his presence yet again. Light on music theory questions, Mike still schools us on jazz history, swing rhythm, and a fancy concept called rotary time perception. First up, Aldrine talks a bit about practicing strumming and rhythm without an ukulele. The guys also discuss the unique quality of each solo or musical performance.
