00:00 - NFL card look through while free loop for all to play along with plays

Happy thanksgiving friends

I took a break from watching the Packers tear the ass outta the Lions to share this loop I made last night for you to play along with should you so choose….it’s a fun one.

And then I thought, hell while I’m holding the camera in one place for 3 minutes, I might as well show them this beautiful complete set of 1969 Topps football cards. One of my personal favorite sets if you wanna get honest about it.

Put up a vid of you playing along if you want , but please don’t put my name in the title bar because it clouds the search waters. Let’s see what you got kids.

Homeskoolin’ Bonus, “Nashville Thursday”

00:00 - '63 Gibson SG Special just bought
00:40 - Music City tailpiece replacement
01:30 - Acoustic guitar repaired
02:55 - Duke Levine in the studio
04:07 - Back in the kitchen playing some nice tunes with the new SG

Three parts for ya in this vid....

1) a nice peek at the LOVELY guitar repair work of my dear old friend Nick Drushel at Glaser Instrument Repair in Nashville…615-298-1139
Nick is a gifted repair man…he uses his boundless creativity and skill to solve any problem I or anyone else can ever come up with.
He loves a challenge and ALWAYS finds a way to make it work in the end...mad respect bro.

2) a quick look at the session I’ve been in the last two days at Curb Studio in Nashville on a Wade Bowen record.
Been having an absolute blast playing with Duke Levine and the rest of that amazing band.
Check out the little call and answer thing between him and I on that intro.
i play the major 7 riff and then he does those bad ass slide down answers... the end result sounds like one big awesome guitar.

3) a little late night Buk jam for all you night owls out there…been fine tuning and tweakin' this old SG after getting it back today from a killer refret by Nick.
Those offset conversion posts he designed to be able to put an ABR-1 on your old Gibson using the original stud holes are gonna be a game changer for everyone when they come out.
Check the music city bridge website people...
