Homeskoolin' Bonus, "Bar Fly"

00:00 - All over the neck playing
03:44 - Ebo Customs amp demonstration

If you like what you are hearing here...it's all coming through this bad ass little amp i just bought recently....hand made by one of my best friends on this planet.

I can tell you guys straight up....Ebo is NOT fucking around here. All the stuff he builds is built like a brick shit house.

He does ALL of the work on these completely by himself...out of his mind out in his shop all day long soaring high on a mixture of coffee, cigarettes and solder smoke.

He has owned and worked on all the coolest amps money can buy for decades and the the boy knows what great guitar sound is.

This amp will survive the upcoming zombie apocalypse no problem.

Homeskoolin’ Bonus 4th of July Feedback

00:00 - Beautiful slow jam
05:53 - Duesenberg Blackbird
06:36 - Echoplex
07:07 - Gretsch 6161 Amp

Well guys….I have always said, music is the great healer….especially tape echo imploding through some red hot 7591s…

I am layin’ low today friends. Drove myself to the ER at 2:30am last night after waking up in EXCRUCIATING kidney stone level pain in my right side…

My right side has been hurting right below the rib cage for about the past week, but last night it went into full on "attack mode" and i thought it was a kidney stone or the old appendix was about to burst.

Anyhoo, they put me on a morphine IV and that certainly helped. It turns out whatever is going on with me has been perplexing to the two different docs i have been to. Two different abdmonial CTI scans show absolutely nothing abnormal…blood work is fine, liver is fine….gallbladder looks normal, no kidney stones, no appendicitis or pancreatitis….so what IS IT?

No one knows….ulcer is the most reasonable conclusion at this point…which kinda fits "the lifestyle" in the often stressful world of the Uncle Larry. Do NOT worry friends, Larry is just gonna take it easy, play some guitar, watch some movies and chill the fuck out. Hope you all have a great holiday…and please do NOT blow your fingers off tomorrow lads ferchrissakes
