Notes
He just woke up and his hair is a mess, but Uncle Larry can still teach ya’ some redneck guitar licks while he is having his coffee.

Today’s tone courtesy of a lightly/tastefully chopped 54 esquire and a 59 tweed deluxe.

Probably around 6 tonite things are when things are gonna get cookin' on twitch.com...here is the link

Ya' know, if anyone out there has some nice old 50's or 60's football cards they wanna sell or trade for guitars, please email me at tombukovac@gmail.com

Uncle Larry's therapist suggested that maybe he should try getting his mind off music for a minute, and collecting old cards is the closest thing Larry has to a "non-music related hobby"....

Corona Lessons Volume 8, Tom Bukovac. Summer Blues

Chapters

00:30 - Using your thumb to play bass notes
03:30 - Demonstration of using thumb
05:03 - Not bending
05:40 - Using pick and fingers


Notes
A couple slightly unusual techniques here for you all to possibly explore....plus a shameless declaration about my utter distaste for what most normal people consider "nice weather". I come by it honestly folks....there was no person on this planet that absolutely LOATHED being hot more than my dear departed mum Norma Irene Bukovac. She would gladly sit inside in the air conditioning during any outdoor summer family event of my childhood. This one goes out to her....in all those ugly transformative years between" total bar band hack" and "professional session man" she never said one discouraging word. She was truly somethin' special.
