I took a brief hiatus from some heavy gambling to film this little odyssey…this one goes out to Ray Dietrich…who changed the world forever in October of 1962…exactly 60 years ago…wow

Big thanks to all those who watch regularly and steal all my licks and concepts…use them in good health my friends.

Today’s amplification provided by Benson Electronics from Portland Oregon…the model is a very limited run of 3x10 tweed Bandmaster clones they recently made called a “Benmaster”

somewhat inconsequential side note:
3:04 to 3:06 is a good illustration of the kind of musical "telepathy" that can only come from one person...(the subconscious break in the rhythm in EXACTLY the same spot on both instruments)...that kinda shit fascinates me.

Homeskoolin’ Volume 153, Tom Bukovac, “When I Get To Heaven”

00:00 - Making a loop
01:40 - Laying the Tele track down
05:00 - Starting track again with underlying chords
07:34 - Ending on a weird chord / Trippy tune to overlay
09:52 - Tuning / Adding tremolo
10:56 - "We got a plan now"
13:45 - Ending with Mellotron / Harmony part

21:15 - Adding in bass
26:45 - Adding in the lap steel
30:26 - Building the loop final - Take 1

Loops while you wait….five tracks start finish in under 35 minutes. Even though its painful at times when the L plug comes outta the tele jack or a random youtube video starts playing out of nowhere, i thought maybe you guys might get a kick outta seeing the deep inner pain and soul wrestling that goes along with making a typical Homeskoolin’ style loop.

This one features my son’s Jazz Bass and my alltime favorite lap steel…a 30’s Rickenbacker model B

Homeskoolin’ Monday Night Bonus…”Buzz Saw Blues”

00:00 - Badass Blues loop jam

One of my favorite guitar tones of all time is the super bright razzy blown speaker distortion effect. Such as the direct sounding buzz saw tone on "Black Dog" by Jimmy Page.

Getting pretty close here with an old Roger Mayer Voodoo-1 through an old AC30. Another old pedal that gives up that tone in spades is the old Multivox Big Jam Distortion…although sadly i dont own one. Hope you guys enjoy!
