Homeskoolin’ Volume 149, Tom Bukovac, “Strat Fury Volume 3”

00:00 - Flying pick playing all the way through

A brief odyssey on one of the best guitars I have personally ever owned….this old ‘62 is like the Larry Holmes of old Strats…don’t be fooled by that sexy ass burst…it’s a tough strong unforgiving tank of a guitar…
Big neck, kinda heavy, with rude ballsy pickups….you gotta man handle this one, but damn is it cool.

We have had a tumultuous relationship…i even sold it once like a fool years ago, missed it terribly, and then bought it back.

Homeskoolin’ Hump Day Bonus “I’m In The Mood For A Heiny”

00:00 - Beautiful, soulful playing

Well, guys….after ALL the love i have given to my trusted brand for years, not a single soul from Latrobe has reached out to help your sad old uncle…no calls, no letters, no emails…crickets….

now, he is SERIOUSLY considering switching to another green bottle…the same one your old Uncle Eddie enjoyed….

Taking you back to 1983 here with one of the greatest guitar solos ever recorded in my humble opinion….Robbie Blunt’s brilliant contribution to the Robert Plant song called “In The Mood”….which also featured some fine drumming by another English bloke that your uncle holds dear to his heart…..

The super sparkly high end on the '60 Strat i bought at an estate sale is being provided by the Vertex Ultra Phonix Special Overdrive pedal that dear Mason was kind enough to send me....delay is Vahlbruch Space Time that Vahlbruch was kind enough to send me....reverb was a Boss RV-6 i bought at a music store going out of business sale...amp is a dead clean '65 Vibrolux Reverb with the factory Jensen 10's that you DEFINITELY want in your old Vibrolux that i bought off the craigslist.

Record is coming Friday folks on the website Bandcamp….Ill post a link as soon as i know it.
