Homeskoolin’ Bonus Jam “Remember When Songs Had One Chord?”

00:00 - Slow, soulful playing

Filmed late last night after getting home from a full day of sessioneering. Some of the harmonic possibilities available while just “pedaling” on a simple one chord motif. Also an example of the “claw”right hand technique we should all know, where you select only the strings you want to hear with your individual fingers.

Oh, and this is the best 70’s Les Paul i have personally ever seen…i usually do NOT go for any 70’s paul but this one has some magic. Picked it up in a trade recently…’71 custom, all there except for the hideous gold speed knobs that are currently on it..but don’t worry, there WILL be witch hats.
