Homeskoolin’ Restaurant Review “Nicky G’s Kitchen Downtown”

Chapters
00:00 - The Kitchen Downtown
00:55 - Music room / kids playing


Notes
If you happen to live in Nashville or if you plan to visit soon you absolutely MUST check out this amazing restaurant....its called “Kitchen Downtown” in the legendary Arcade in downtown Nashville. Owned and operated by one of my best pals on this earth...Nick “NICKY G” Govrik....a hard working Hungarian who provides healthy and delicious food for very reasonable prices.

Nick was the bassist and main songwriter for Trigger Hippy, the band i played in back in the mid 10’s with Steve Gorman, Joan Osborne and Jackie Greene. You will love this place, Uncle Larry guarantees it.

Homeskoolin’ Session Update “Isolation Dot Com”

Chapters
00:00 - Isolation cab fun


Notes
May 18, 2021.... I always wanted to make a website called “isolation.com” where you have live camera feeds with video and audio of isolated guitar cabinets in various studios all over nashvlle where all you can hear is the audio coming through the guitar cabinets but with no context of the music is was playing along to. It might be boring for some but real weirdos like me might find it fascinating. Here is one such example Todays session Rick Huckaby: vocals, acoustic guitar and songs Glenn Worf: bass Nir Z: drums Me: electric guitar Shannon Forrest: engineer
