Homeskoolin’ Bonus “Estimated Prophet”

00:00 - Another look at the Prophet-5 / Playing and building another song

This episode starring:
The Prophet

October 21st, 2022

Homeskoolin’ Bonus, “Analawg Dawgs”

00:00 - Building a song
08:58 - Prophet-5

Day 4 of a 7 day marathon session, where the Amazing Dawgs are re-united once again working on writing and recording a new Ann Wilson record at Smoakstack Studio in Nashville TN.

In this clip Uncle Larry does what any decent friend does when a guy is playing a pad on an old analog synth…he is working the cut off filter.

Amazing Dawg Paul adds some magic glue to the track on an old Prophet 5….while bandmates Amazing Dawg Tony and Amazing Dawg Sean look on in horror.

Zack Zinck absolutely KILLING it on the engineering gig....a top notch professional, and about the nicest, easiest guy to work with you could ever find on this planet.

There is no official “producer” per se on this record….so what you are seeing here is four hardened, brutally opinionated studio veterans who are all trying to function in a completely democratic fashion…which can be challenging at times….but so far so good.

Ann’s vocal on the track is muted during this filming, but you can hear an epic Paul Moak guitar solo at the end of this track, as well as some hypnotically adult acoustic piano stylings from a relatively unknown Youtuber from Cleveland.

Homeskoolin’ Bonus “Target Shooting”

00:00 - Session footage

An excerpt from a little session i did today at Castle studio here in nashville.

It can be tedious at times, but a big part of being a session man is straight up what i’ve always referred to as “target shooting”. You gotta be able to quickly and cleanly execute fairly repetitive parts take after take and be dead in the pocket….and trust me on this friends, if you CAN’T do it, they will find someone who can.

I borrowed this Baxendale Sovereign from my buddy Kris Donegan, absolutely GREAT guitar. This was a double of a 6 string “ganjo” part i had previously played, but ill spare you that carnage haha.

Thanks for watching guys

Homeskoolin’ B Roll Bonus

00:00 - Couple of clips

Just a random mish mash of Homeskoolin’ related stuff…the studio footage is from a sesh i did the other day for my producer friend Julian Raymond, working with a young artist called Connor Mccutcheon….very nice lad he is…

Can i just go off for a minute about how much i love Julian Raymond? I have done a million records with him since he moved to nashville 10 years ago or so….as a producer, he always has a way of making me think i can accomplish or play ANYTHING….

Being a positive force and being a cheerleader is a great trait for any producer to have. As a player, when producers act that way you just want to KICK ASS for them…. and conversely, when producers are condescending cunts you absolutely DO NOT want to kick ass for them.

And what’s with these brown bottles of rolling rock here??

Homeskoolin’ Studio Update, “The Amazing Dawgs”

00:00 - Session playing

The crude early stages of trying to fashion some weird random thoughts into some sort of song with Ann Wilson and her band “The Amazing Dawgs” …

Ok, first off, who came up with that name?? and even more amazing is the fact that we all agreed to it…

Tony the bass player has been seriously considering getting the words “Amazing Dawg” tattooed on his arm….but there have been a few threats that the band name might get changed at some point…i personally kinda like it because its just so unbelievably dumb.

I want to sincerely thank all of you guys for watching the channel and for all the kind donations…99.8 percent of you people are absolute sweethearts…
