Homeskoolin’ Bonus “Today’s Homework Winner”

00:00 - Answer back from viewer

Ok, so when i casually suggested earlier today that maybe some of you guys might try taking a stab at goofing around with that tricky tune i put up this afternoon called “Theory’s Ways”, i was NOT expecting someone to come along and play it cold, fucking dead on note for note.

Well this cat sure as hell did…his name is Lidor Elimelich. He has been a Homeskooler since the beginning.

I am knocked out that he got all the little details EXACTLY right….and that thing is NOT easy to play.

Right on bro…nice work

Homeskoolin’ Bonus “Theory's Ways”

00:00 - Interesting passage

I originally titled this "Progathon" but a Homeskooler named Gb Seventy3 pointed out that "Theory's Ways" is clearly what it SHOULD be called...thanks for that my friend.

See, you guys think I’m a “prog freak”…but here’s the thing you don’t understand. The ONLY prog i was ever into was just these three bands…Genesis, Yes and Jethro Tull….the rest of it i honestly couldn’t care less about.

Of course I respect all the others (like ELP, King Crimson, Gentle Giant etc etc etc) but i was never into it.

Here’s a little thing i wrote a loooong time ago…I’ve had the A and B sections of this tune floating around in my head since i was in my early 30’s (i remember writing it in some hotel room on the road in the 90’s)…i just added the C section on today so i could tart it out for you guys.

It doesn’t look all that hard, but it’s EXTREMELY difficult to play….a lesson in itself of letting strings ring clearly whilst fretting other notes…. In fact if anyone out there can pull this off convincingly note for note i JUST MIGHT even send then a nice comfy Homeskoolin t shirt on the house haha

Thanks for watching and supporting the channel friends…oh and fuck off Axel
