Homeskoolin’ Bonus Jam “The Roadrunner”

00:00 - Picking blues mix jam
06:56 - '53 Fender Telecaster

Hey Homeskoolers, hope all is well….just stuck in the house on a rainy day with a funky old blackguard Tele and my dear son Leo who came in to show me his crumpled up treasure map.

Rest in peace my dear old friend Tim Akers.

For those concerned, the Trip The Witch single will be featured on an exclusive with Guitar World tomorrow (Wednesday) and released in CD Baby (basically all digital platforms) Friday!

00:00 - Ending part of Crazy On You playthrough

When i am figuring out tunes i like to know ALL the parts, not just the guitar parts….when i was learning “Crazy On You” for this Ann Wilson gig i just HAD to figure out the fairly complex vocal arrangement that happens over the E chord….

Homeskoolin’ Sunday Night Bonus “The Green Green Glass Of Home”

00:00 - Hillbilly rocking jam

Just goofin’ about on my old 55 Tele...through a little plastic practice may be a “little bright” sounding as they sometimes say in the studio...but lest we not forget, treble is indeed a stimulant my friends.

This is a slight adaptation of the little riff i played on a Morgan Wallen track called “Need A Boat” where Bryan Sutton and i are battling each other in a full on hillbilly pickin’ bloodbath.

Totally unrelated, if you’re bored check out the new Yola single which just came out recently called “Stand For Myself”....this record was recorded at Easy Eye studio a good while back and my fucking thumb STILL hurts from slappin’ the acoustic on that intro...ouch.
