01:23 - Chatting with the man Billy Gibbons
02:10 - Driving through a hydrant, HA!


Fun day today friends…getting close to finishing this little record i am making with Guthrie….it really should be illegal to have as much fun as we have been having the past few days.

A day of legends…getting to hear Paul Franklin burn it up on a little number i made up in my lonely kitchen is one for the memory books…

and then the Reverend came by for a bit this afternoon and we were all talking about potential names for this project GT and I are doing…which naturally turned into me asking him how he came up with that name you might have heard of called “ZZ Top” (partially captured here)

I also threw in a somewhat surreal moment from the drive in to work this morning

Thanks for watching guys

Thanks for watching the show people...we got a pretty good thing going here.

...and speaking of good things, check out this bad boy

Steve Cox....a dear old friend from Cleveland,
He taught a young Uncle Larry some very valuable musical lessons back when Larry was just a mixed up kid living in some shit rental house with a carpeted kitchen in Antioch.
I owe Steve a lot.....i still use some of the things he showed me on a daily basis...and ol' Larry never forgets anyone who helped him anywhere along "the journey".

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 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

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"....

Hello kids, Larry just wanted to say thanks for all the kind comments on the recent Brett Papa video i did with sweet Guthrie Trapp which you can watch here…

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

Hello class…in today's presentation…a walk through the chords of the Trip The Witch song “Dressed To Kill Myself”.

Also , a couple videos of my dear old friend Guthrie Trapp absolutely destroying my ‘38 OOO-18 and my ‘37 AJ.

Also, the lovely ‘65 Gibson 335 in the video is available in this episode of Uncle Larry’s garage sale. This guitar is ABSOLUTELY ready to be someone’s main squeeze….beautiful refret and it plays like absolute butter, dead in tune. Nice fuckin guitar in the original case. Has some Bigsby holes and original tuners reinstalled after some others were on it…best part about this guitar is it has the “tweener” nut width…it’s not the classic wide pre ‘65 1 11/16” nut width, but it’s not that super skinny late 60’s feel either…its a “tweener”

9500 plus shipping

Email me at if you need it

Stay tuned for super comfy Trip The Witch t shirts!
