But anyhoo, dig this cats…i got some very exciting news Mark your calendars people!!

Sunday night July 3rd

Live stream on Brett Papa’s channel with yours truly and dearest Guthrie Trapp (and possibly another special guest) where we answer questions, jam a bit, and most importantly, pick the WINNING POSTCARD!!!

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

Chapters
00:00 - Making a loop

05:00 - Starting track again with underlying chords
07:34 - Ending on a weird chord / Trippy tune to overlay

Notes
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

Thanks so much for watching these recent episodes that were brought to you strictly by covid and canceled tour dates.

Homeskoolin’ Monday Night Bonus…”Buzz Saw Blues”

Chapters
00:00 - Badass Blues loop jam


Notes
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!
