Uncle Larry gives it to ya straight on in this one...real talk...

i mean let's face it people.... vibrato is like the guitar players "fingerprint" if you will...if you must...

It is one of a very small number of key distinguishing factors that separates one guitar player from another in a police line up of guitar players...

It needs to be paid attention to VERY CLOSELY and, according to some recent NASA findings, most guitar players don't THINK about their vibrato nearly as much as they should...i tend to agree.


a LOT of people have asked me lately where they can go to buy a Homeskoolin t shirt or other sexy ass Homeskoolin' merch...well...this is where you go.

Homeskoolin’ Bonus “Boss Man & Bubba”

Chapters
00:00 - Special Duesenberg Session Man


Notes
This video shows two sweetheart dudes that have both been a MAJOR positive influence on my life.

The first part was shot back on July 11th.

Vinnie ordered a special one-off short scale version of the Duesenberg Session Man Uncle Larry model, and i couldn't resist the urge to film the "unboxing" part of the program haha.
I think he truly liked it....it's a beautiful guitar.
He says he plans to use it on the next Eagles run.
Thanks to dearest Nathan (or "Navin" as Vince calls him) Fawley for taking care of us all these years.
I'm very proud to be a part of the Duesenberg team

I've learned a lot from Mr. Gill in this life....i played behind him for years, and spent many hours in the studio with him, and I'm ALWAYS learning something from watching him operate.
A true master and a lovely guy.

The fella at the end of the vid is my "mentor" or "guru" or whatever other word you would use.

He was the best man at my wedding in 2010.....he literally taught me everything i know about old guitars and amps when i was growing up.

Greg "Bubba" Sarley

I don't know what the hell i would do without him.

Love you Bubba and Vinnie....bros to the end

Thanks for watching friends.
