00:00 - Emotionally beautiful playing

Another Ambienscape brought to you by Larry…i wish someone could hear all the notes going on in my head that my fingers cannot possibly reach while all this madness is going on.

Thanks for watching the channel…you guys are cool.

This one goes out to my old buddy World's Best Wanker.....i hope he finds what he is looking for in that dark lonely basement of his Dear Ol' Mum's house.

A rare gear review from Larry….filled to the brim with brutal honesty, laughter and tears.

Special thank you to dearest James Hatem and the fine people at Roland for letting me try this cool new pedal…the RE-202.

Please note, this device has far more to offer than i glanced upon in this precursory perfunctory analysis, including a “warp” freak out mode that happens when you hold down the pedal, but i wasn’t emotionally ready to delve into all that in this video.

totally unrelated, these rug cleaning vids have at least temporarily taken the place of old NFL films in Larry's current youtube watch list

If you like this channel and the weird guy who talks on it, you can throw something in the tip jar via paypal

Homeskoolin “Room Service”

00:00 - Noodling before a gig.

Hello all, sequestered in a hotel room on the road with no amp has always been a good Zen way for me to truly “get in touch” with the instrument.
Crude as it is, this is the shit that REALLY matters…because if this “direct connection” from your hands to the source ain’t right, well then whats the point of amplifying it?

Hello my dear Homeskoolers….just wanted to let you know about some very cool stuff Dean Deleo is going to be posting on the Trip The Witch Instagram page.

This is one example of some of the actual solo’ed ProTools tracks from the TTW album…you can get a glimpse of some of the isolated sounds, without all those loud drums bashin’ away. Much more of this to come on the TTW Instagram page. Check it out friends.

A brief slightly out of tune late night exploration on my dear son’s dakota red 66 fender duo sonic….and a little public service announcement letting you know about two things that are available.

check out the thumb pick with a very comfortable and unique “hinged” design that i am using in this video at:

AND….i thought these limited edition signed prints were all gone long ago, but ziggy, the amazing artist that drew these, reminded me there are still 21 of them left. Check them out at:

He also wanted me to tell you that there is free shipping on these prints.

Thank you guys for taking this class that seemingly never ends… i hope you all know how much i sincerely appreciate the Homeskoolin’ Family. I am always blown away by the kindness and warmth of the comments that i find in the VCB.

Yours truly,
Uncle Larry
