Homeskoolin’ Bonus “B Roll From Giants Show”

Chapters
00:00 - Footage of the rehearsal for "Giants"


Notes
Warning: this one here is ONLY for the real die hard Homeskoolers out there.

Damn near 30 minutes of rehearsal footage....i thought about chopping it up, but then decided to give it all to ya in one big long painful block, so you can feel the slog of a 10 hour rehearsal day just like we do haha.

disclaimer: i clearly realize that there are worse 10 hour work days.....

i'll tell ya' a job that would REALLY suck. top of my list of all-time nightmare jobs....to be the guy that cleans and maintains a busy airport restroom....there's something about "international shit" that's even more horrifying than "domestic shit".... the worst job i ever had in my younger days was doing carpet and flooring with my older brother doug...it was great to hang out with him all day, but the job itself SUCKED.

i also did asphalt with my other brother Mike....a VERY small company in Cleveland called "Perfection Paving"...the only dump truck the company could afford was from the 40's and it wouldn't go over 35 MPH on the highway....which was a problem when you are carrying a hot load of asphalt long distances.

anyhoo....back to today's video...b roll rehearsal footage from the recently aired CMT show called "Giants" honoring Vince Gill.

Starring
Uncle Larry
Jedd Hughes
Paulie Franklin
Chris Stapleton

Homeskoolin’ Bonus “Larry, Jedd and Paul, featuring Sting”

Chapters
00:00 - Footage from Country Music Television's "Giants"


Notes
Hahaaa….just kiddin…i know the real billing order…it should be “Jedd, Paul and Tom, featuring Sting”

Heres an alternate take from the one that actually was on the show.

Hope you enjoy…i had a lonely princeton reverb backstage behind a wall, mic’ed up, and what you are hearing is through the wedge.

When you got your guitar sounding like this through a wedge, you KNOW its gonna be right out front.

I will lay out the Plexi Soul “down under” shipping situation soon….special thanks to Jedd’s dad.

Thanks for watching the show and sorry for the gratuitous “over posting” and shameless flogging of all things Homeskoolin’….no sessions for a while…a man gets “bored” sometimes….so then that man sells a few of his tools of war…so that he can then purchase some other tools of war.

R.I.P. John Madden….one of the greatest football personalities that ever walked the streets of America

Homeskoolin’ Bonus…”Jeddy Unitas”

Chapters
00:00 - Acoustic playing by Jedd Hughes


Notes
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.
