Uncle Larry in a brand new green Homeskoolin’ t….damn this thing is soooo comfy…it’s like wearing a cloud.

A brief dissertation on the power of blowing up the input of an old Fender amp with the right stuff.

Totally unrelated, one of my biggest pet peeves in this world is this… when you see a thumbnail for a youtube video that has some kind of amazing photo….but then when you actually watch that video there is not a single thing in the video that even shows the photo they used in the thumbnail.

I fucking HATE that false advertising bullshit….there should be laws against this.

I may even sell that bad ass 76 bc rich mockingbird i have.

Peter Gabriel “Mother Of Violence”

“Walking the street with her naked feet So full of rhythm but I can't find the beat Snapping her heels clicking her toes Everybody knows just where she goes Ah fear, fear, she's the mother of violence Making me tense to watch the way she breed Fear, she's the mother of violence You know self-defense is all you need It's getting hard to breathe It's getting so hard to believe To believe in anything at all Mouth all dry eyes, blood shot Data stored in microdot Kicking the cloud with my moccasin shoes T.v. Dinner, T.V. News Ah 'cause fear Fear, she's the mother of violence Don't make any sense to watch the way she breed Fear, she's the mother of violence Making me tense to watch the way she feed The only way you know she's there Is the subtle flavor in the air Getting hard to breathe Hard to believe in anything at all But fear”

Homeskoolin’ Update…PLEASE read the video description below!

Chapters
00:00 - Mini pedalboard build


Bandcamp links:
https://tombukovac.bandcamp.com/album/plexi-soul
https://tombukovac.bandcamp.com/album/plexi-soul-homeskoolin-edition



Notes
As soon as i know the link to the bandcamp website where the album will be posted for sale, i will pin it on the comments for this video.

Dearest Nathan from Duesenberg proposed a brilliant idea. In an effort to include EVERYONE….we are gonna do it this way. Everyone who buys both copies of the record will automatically be entered into a drawing that will most likely happen on Christmas morning….the winner will receive a new Duesenberg Session Man guitar.

I want this to be a two part contest type deal…I'm thinking part one is the drawing where EVERYONE who buys both versions of the record can win….part two will be for all the players out there…where we will give away an Ebo Customs amp to whoever wins the playing portion.

PLEASE UNDERSTAND!!!!
This is all still being put together and nothing is carved in stone here. I will present all the final details about the contest situation as soon as they are officially cemented I swear.

I want to sincerely thank my dear friends at XTS pedalboards here in Nashville for throwing this killer little fly board together for me on VERY short notice…these guys are the absolute greatest and i appreciate them so much.

Stay tuned for the link to my silly record guys…thank you SO MUCH for your continued support of the channel.

I can’t express how much i cherish the heartfelt comments many of you have sent about how i have helped so many of you get through covid with these lessons…it means the world to me and i hope you all know that.

Rock on brothers
