Wait just a minute....Uncle Larry has a website now??? Whattttt????

Check it out kids:

http://thesessionman.com

The freshly re-mixed live video from the birthday gig at 3rd and Lindsley on December 20th 2022 is finally ALMOST ready to launch. Should be up in the next day or two. You can purchase a digital download of it from the new website for $14.99 if you like.

It features guest appearances by Guthrie Trapp, Jedd Hughes and Wendy Moten.  It also features a few clams and an occasional video glitch that was unfixable in post... but in the big picture these are only minor inconveniences...it's all in the spirit of live performance and it's many imminent dangers.

Most importantly, the original audio tracks from this show were beautifully remixed by the legendary engineer Steve Marcantonio,....Steve made a lot of big records in New York...J Geils, John Lennon etc

Special thanks to young David McLeod for putting the new website together.

Special thanks to Sting for writing the fucking amazing song I played at the beginning of the video...

"Tea In The Sahara"

"My sisters and I
Have one wish before we die

And it may sound strange
As if our minds are deranged
Please don't ask us why
Beneath the sheltering sky
We have this strange obsession
You have the means in your possession

Tea in the Sahara with you
Tea in the Sahara with you

The young man agreed
He would satisfy their need
So they danced for his pleasure
With a joy you could not measure
They would wait for him here
The same place every year
Beneath the sheltering sky
Across the desert he would fly

Tea in the Sahara with you
Tea in the Sahara with you

The sky turned to black
Would he ever come back?
They would climb a high dune
They would pray to the moon
But he'd never return
So the sisters would burn
As their eyes searched the land
With their cups full of sand"

Totally unrelated but still cool, here's that Duke Levine thing i mentioned in today's vid....absolutely transcendental shit.

Despite Dominic Hudson's best efforts to deter them, a lot of newer viewers have been asking "where is the tip jar?" lately...well, if you feel led to contribute a little something to the Homeskoolin' cause after well over 200 free guitar lessons, you can do that here.

You can also get some very cool Guthrie Trapp and Jedd Hughes merch at that same site.

Over the last couple years, Uncle Larry made a couple records that you could potentially listen to...
one is an instrumental solo record called "Plexi Soul" that is available here:
https://tombukovac.bandcamp.com/album...

another is an instrumental collaboration with his dear friend Dean Deleo (originally from the Stone Temple Pilots organization) that is available here:
https://tripthewitch.bandcamp.com/alb...


Thanks for watching the show friends..I hope you are learning how to find your own voice on the guitar.
