Last year I released an episode featuring my friend Geoff Skellams, a talented player of ukulele and guitar who was feeling a little frustrated by his progress with learning Hawaiian slack key. He did get some lessons after that episode was recorded and they helped a bit, but this year the frustration seemed to be returning in a big way. Then in June, Geoff went to a week-long workshop in Hawaii which absolutely turned things around for him. His excitement was so infectious that I got him back on the show to tell me all about it.
