Homeskoolin’ Bonus…”Jeddy Unitas”

00:00 - Acoustic playing by Jedd Hughes

Just when i thought this magical Sunday where i went 4-0 on NFL bets couldn’t get any better, just imagine my joy when the pride of Quorn, Jedd Hughes, showed up my door at midnight last night….i told him he could crash here at my crib for the week while he is in town making a record.

I have been waiting patiently to hear him extract magic tone from the '38 bone like only he can, and i promptly put it in his hands within the first five minutes he was here.

You may have guessed, your crazy uncle is an avid football and baseball card collector since the age of 8….

This little vignette shows four of my heroes…Nitschke and Unitas from the lovely red and blue bordered '71 Topps football set (one of my personal alltime favorite sets)…a '73 Topps Dick Butkus "action card"….and some other guy holding a guitar.

Thanks for supporting the channel lads…and thank you for the continuing positivity regarding the Plexi Soul record.

Homeskoolin’ “Top Down Summer Cruiser”

00:00 - Deep, soulful playing

Just a little thingy i made up last night….this is the guitar you hear on most of the tracks of the Plexi Soul record….from the glass lined tanks of the golden age of Kalamazoo…a little slice of pre-Vietnam American glory.

Thanks for supporting the channel friends.

Homeskoolin’ “Life Is Surreal Pt 2”

00:00 - Video shoot and thank you

Just when you think life can’t get any weirder…Dave Stewart decides that Uncle Larry’s new old bachelor pad is the ONLY place suitable to film Joss Stone’s new music video….despite the fact that the director, Brian Tortoro (featured in this video) tried to talk some sense into him and suggested several other locations.

Thank you for supporting the channel and thank you guys for buying my record.

Homeskoolin’ Volume 115, Tom Bukovac, “An Apple A Day”

00:00 - Sincere Thank You

A quick thank you to the Homeskoolers for the kind words regarding the Plexi Soul album that was released Oct 28th on Bandcamp. And…..a quick interview with Bruce Bouton, a dear old friend, who happens to be one of the most legendary pedal steel guitar players on the planet. Thank you for watching the program friends.

Homeskoolin’ Update…PLEASE read the video description below!

00:00 - Mini pedalboard build

Bandcamp links:

As soon as i know the link to the bandcamp website where the album will be posted for sale, i will pin it on the comments for this video.

Dearest Nathan from Duesenberg proposed a brilliant idea. In an effort to include EVERYONE….we are gonna do it this way. Everyone who buys both copies of the record will automatically be entered into a drawing that will most likely happen on Christmas morning….the winner will receive a new Duesenberg Session Man guitar.

I want this to be a two part contest type deal…I'm thinking part one is the drawing where EVERYONE who buys both versions of the record can win….part two will be for all the players out there…where we will give away an Ebo Customs amp to whoever wins the playing portion.

This is all still being put together and nothing is carved in stone here. I will present all the final details about the contest situation as soon as they are officially cemented I swear.

I want to sincerely thank my dear friends at XTS pedalboards here in Nashville for throwing this killer little fly board together for me on VERY short notice…these guys are the absolute greatest and i appreciate them so much.

Stay tuned for the link to my silly record guys…thank you SO MUCH for your continued support of the channel.

I can’t express how much i cherish the heartfelt comments many of you have sent about how i have helped so many of you get through covid with these lessons…it means the world to me and i hope you all know that.

Rock on brothers

Homeskoolin’ Hump Day Bonus “I’m In The Mood For A Heiny”

00:00 - Beautiful, soulful playing

Well, guys….after ALL the love i have given to my trusted brand for years, not a single soul from Latrobe has reached out to help your sad old uncle…no calls, no letters, no emails…crickets….

now, he is SERIOUSLY considering switching to another green bottle…the same one your old Uncle Eddie enjoyed….

Taking you back to 1983 here with one of the greatest guitar solos ever recorded in my humble opinion….Robbie Blunt’s brilliant contribution to the Robert Plant song called “In The Mood”….which also featured some fine drumming by another English bloke that your uncle holds dear to his heart…..

The super sparkly high end on the '60 Strat i bought at an estate sale is being provided by the Vertex Ultra Phonix Special Overdrive pedal that dear Mason was kind enough to send me....delay is Vahlbruch Space Time that Vahlbruch was kind enough to send me....reverb was a Boss RV-6 i bought at a music store going out of business sale...amp is a dead clean '65 Vibrolux Reverb with the factory Jensen 10's that you DEFINITELY want in your old Vibrolux that i bought off the craigslist.

Record is coming Friday folks on the website Bandcamp….Ill post a link as soon as i know it.

Paypal tip jar is
