Homeskoolin Bonus “Larry Schmarry”

00:00 - Without You rendition

All alone by the fireplace after my sweet sweet boys have gone to bed and after winning a pile on the ravens minus 1…

This one goes out to the big cat’s dad….and pete ham…
much love

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“’Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—
Only this and nothing more.”

Homeskoolin’ PSA..... “Ain't Talkin' Bot Love”

00:00 - Little acoustic jamming
00:22 - Hey guys! / PSA about "ass pipe"

The scam bots are back.

The best thing you can do is just report it to youtube.

Don’t fall for it kids….it’s just the work of a bunch of failed rockstars and string lockers.

Cool spectre at the end of this vid right as the power went out right?

Those are just my angels that tell me what notes to play…glad they are around

Homeskoolin’ Bonus “Target Shooting”

00:00 - Session footage

An excerpt from a little session i did today at Castle studio here in nashville.

It can be tedious at times, but a big part of being a session man is straight up what i’ve always referred to as “target shooting”. You gotta be able to quickly and cleanly execute fairly repetitive parts take after take and be dead in the pocket….and trust me on this friends, if you CAN’T do it, they will find someone who can.

I borrowed this Baxendale Sovereign from my buddy Kris Donegan, absolutely GREAT guitar. This was a double of a 6 string “ganjo” part i had previously played, but ill spare you that carnage haha.

Thanks for watching guys

Homeskoolin’ Bonus “Pulled Into Nazareth”

00:00 - Playing a good one

Ain’t NO damn acoustic guitar is worth 100K right?….until you hear the sound of that open G string…

I literally just pulled this thing outta the case, didn’t even tune it, and this is what it gives up…

Every single time i pick this guitar up i am amazed by it….i am so eternally thankful i found old 70253 in this life.

Homeskoolin’ Bonus…”The Grass Is Always Bluer On The Other Side”

00:00 - Kentucky Thunder warming up some fierce Bluegrass Country

I played a crazy gig tonite kids….a tv show honoring Vince Gill called “Giants” on CMT network….it’s supposed to air on sept 16.

I was in the house band playing behind some real bad asses….like Sting, Chris Stapleton, Maren Morris, Carrie Underwood and many others…got to see a lot of cool people and re-connect with some dear old friends.

One of my very favorite parts of the whole gig was the fact that our band dressing room was right next to the Ricky Skaggs's band Kentucky Thunder's room, and we got to hear them warming up before the show….and they were kind enough to let me film a taste of it. i was quite surprised and honored to hear that a couple of the fellas are Homeskoolers.

Sweet guys and an absolutely INCREDIBLE sounding group of musicians….i sometimes try to imagine what it would be like to pick a banjo like this…must be a whole lotta fun

Jake Workman: acoustic guitar
Russ Carson: banjo
Gavin Kelso: upright bass
Mike Rogers; rhythm guitar
Dennis Parker: arch top guitar
Luke Bulla: fiddle

Homeskoolin’ Bonus Jam “75 Out The Door”

00:00 - Awesome groovy jam

Your old buddy Larry got a little bit lucky in a pawn shop down on Charlotte Pike the other day…he happened to notice this sweet old early 70’s Alvarez Model 5001 just hangin there on the wall lookin’ all pretty…

He was smitten by the golden glow that emanated from it …and he couldn't help but notice how effortlessly it seemed to outclass all the ice cold pointy headstock neighbors that surrounded it

Well he picked it up, and sure enough, just as he suspected, it played and sounded every bit as cool as it looked….nice low action and more saddle than a man could ever need… apparently they had just put the thing out the fella said…

Well, ol’ Larry walked out with it for 75 bucks tax and all…WITH a gig bag

Homeskoolin’ Volume 162, Tom Bukovac, “You Guys In A Band??”

00:00 - Beautiful playing

02:29 - Acoustic guitar Martin D-28
03:00 - Maton acoustic guitar
04:45 - Amazing Dawgs, bandmates, and being in a band
08:40 - Gambling / Spam and YouTube filters
09:54 - Bonus footage

Television's own Uncle Larry, absolutely exuberant about finally being home and being reunited with his trusty old '38 bone…waxes rhapsodic about that one thing we have ALL thought about since we were little kids….what it's like to really be in a band.

(and now, shift to "first person")

Now that touring is finally calming down and fall is on the way (praise God) it's time to put some focus on some projects that i started on a while back, such as this little instrumental EP that dear Guthrie Trapp and myself are putting together…it's so much’s a little snippet from one of the three tracks we already have "in the can"....gonna go back in soon and do some more.

Also, I couldn’t help but add in a few other crazy things at the end of this vid...a dumb meme that cracks me up... " I AM THE JUAN PERCENT"....oh and my alltime favorite thing that my sweet little boy Leo ever drew for his dear old dad….a totally random partial list he made at school one day of some of our favorite songs we like to jam in the car…precious keepsake.

"you got another thing comin"
"black sabbath"
"hot rod lincoln"
"iron man"
"rock and roll music"
"yellow submarine"
"starship trooper"
"hard day's nite"
"breakin' the law"
"don't stand so close to me"
"behind my camel" (instrumental by the police off zenyatta mondatta)
and one more i could never read

Thanks again for supporting the channel folks….i am doing everything legally allowed to show you guys whatever i can…absolutely free of charge of course. Why am i doing it? Because music has been really good to me in this life, and i feel like it’s the right thing to do to give it all back to a bunch of total strangers...

i hope you guys know how much i sincerely appreciate the little community we have built here …. ya’ know, except for a few kids in the back of the room that get a little too excited at times (like Brock what a tool) we got something very real going here….i for one do not take it for granted.

Rock on cats

Homeskoolin’ Bonus “Dust Storm”

00:00 - Soundcheck

As a wild rain and dust storm rolls in right before our gig tonite in Laughlin NV…you get a little slice of the usual backstage/soundcheck madness that accompanies the Amazing Dawgs gigs.

Dear Rob Olsen of Maton guitars was kind enough to furnish us with this lovely Maton Messiah acoustic guitar to use on this tour….definitely a step up from what we WERE doing….the pickup sounds wonderful.

More than anything, this captures the gigantic soul of our dear band photographer Criss Cain, who is kind enough to stand in for Ann and sing for her at soundchecks….one of the coolest, most genuine people i have ever known.

Homeskoolin’ Bonus Jam “Pioneer Square Dance”

00:00 - Nice, deep rooted  playing

Cooked this little thing up for you guys in about 45 minutes today and was lucky to actually play it right.

Had a good time checkin out the shops in Seattle yesterday….spirits were high…so were prices.

All i found worth having shipped home was a half functioning 60s ampeg super echo twin like frampton used to use…but had a blast riding the light rail and lookin around.
Nice folks
