Homeskoolin’ Restaurant Review “Nicky G’s Kitchen Downtown”

00:00 - The Kitchen Downtown
00:55 - Music room / kids playing

If you happen to live in Nashville or if you plan to visit soon you absolutely MUST check out this amazing restaurant....its called “Kitchen Downtown” in the legendary Arcade in downtown Nashville. Owned and operated by one of my best pals on this earth...Nick “NICKY G” Govrik....a hard working Hungarian who provides healthy and delicious food for very reasonable prices.

Nick was the bassist and main songwriter for Trigger Hippy, the band i played in back in the mid 10’s with Steve Gorman, Joan Osborne and Jackie Greene. You will love this place, Uncle Larry guarantees it.

03:09 - Hello, class!
05:20 - VCB / Wintertime guitar storage
07:54 - Miracle pedalboard sound
08:43 - Session effects switching
11:09 - Bad Company - Shooting Star / Dark sound lesson

A brief chat on tone, a rarely seen in nature bent note finger tap, and a look at “putting out fires” on your pedalboard.

Oh...and thanks to all the class members who came to Uncle Larry’s defense yesterday in the VCB when our old joyless buddy Mr. Fizz flat out insulted my dear wife. Fizzy was promptly “pinned to the wall of mockery” (as your dear classmate Danny pointed out) and subsequently fizzed out somethin’ terrible.

Love to all...happy Saturday lads
