Homeskoolin’ Bonus Jam “Know It? Hell I Wrote It”

00:00 - Plucking and playing with that slide

Uncle Larry gets nasty in a pair of non prescription readers early on a wednesday morning.

ya know friends, you don’t have to re-tune your whole guitar to get some cool slide shit cookin...

all you gotta do is lower your high E string down to D

just tuning that high string down a whole step conjures enough of the ghosts that haunt the standard "open G" tuning that we have all grown up on to get the point across

you guys sick of this loop yet?

Uncle Larry WILL indeed be playing with Vince Gill during his residency at the Ryman August 1 through 4…that gig is firm, officially "on the books" as they say in the biz....

...but this other thing that I overheard some weird drunk guy blabbing on and on about at the bar last night is definitely NOT confirmed by any stretch…

the guy was saying something about some gig by two Nashville guitar nerds who were all excited about some dumb instrumental record they made...i can't really remember the details because i wasn't really listening...

i do remember though that he kept saying that it’s ESPECIALLY NOT supposed to happen on those two calendar days that fall in between august 15 and 18...but thats about all i remember

and totally unrelated...
hey guys....if you DO like this channel and you ARE stealing all my free ideas, please visit the tip jar.
this shit doesn't grow on trees ya know
