Homeskoolin’ Bonus Jam “Neck Romancer”

00:00 - Little blues playing with some fine tone

What’s that old saying? “The Lord loves the middle position on an old P-90 Gibson”

I may be in pain, and a little too ghastly to show from the neck up at the moment, but it’s still fun to play the guitar my friends.

Maybe there’s a lick or two in here you can steal my dear Homeskoolers.

a LOT of new viewers have recently asked "where is the tip jar?" when they felt led to contribute something after 228 free guitar lessons...despite Dominic Hudson's best efforts to deter them.

You can make PayPal donations to this address:

You can make Venmo donations to this address:

Believe it or not....i have a new website people....an actual proper website.

You can see all kinds of weird old photos there, you can also purchase a download of the live concert i did last December if you like.

There are still a few more of the hand signed limited edition Uncle Larry prints that Ziggy O'Leary did left....if you wanna check one out go here:

and a LOT of people don't seem to know that they can go here to purchase a myriad of Homeskoolin' related merchandise..including several different T-shirts and some beautifully constructed coffee mugs for those afflicted with thin lips...

A lot of these very same new viewers don't seem to know that Uncle Larry made a couple records that they could potentially listen to...
one is an instrumental solo record called "Plexi Soul" that is available here:

another is an instrumental collaboration with his dear friend Dean Deleo (originally from the Stone Temple Pilots organization) that is available here:

Homeskoolin' Bonus, "Mondo Bandage"

00:00 - Acoustic playing into / Surgery announcement
03:25 - Good news - Plexi Soul vinyl album
04:30 - Guthrie Trapp record

Hello friends...don't be frightened. Your old buddy is fine. I just went in for some surgery yesterday to remove an area of basal cell carcinoma (inflitrative type) thats been there for years actually.

Supposedly the operation was a success...the people at Vanderbilt were soooooo cool and soooo sweet.
I highly recommend plastic surgeon Dr. Galen Perdikis....he's a real bad ass and it's nice to know there is a real live professional around when it's time to get some big holes cut in your head.

The good news is my facial recognition on my phone still works.

Also, the whole time this is going on, I have been thinking how surprised the world would be if it was skin cancer that took me out....and not some liver or kidney issue haha

Special thanks to my dear old friend Nicky G....ain't a better man in this world in my book.

A little advice to you young cats out there...putting the necessary time in to develop some REAL friendships with a few VERY carefully selected people in this lifetime is a lot more important than nailing the solo to "Kid Charlemagne" or getting a pedal with a convincing Dumble tone.

That shit ain't gonna pick you up on a work day at 9am to take you to the hospital when you need it.

Homeskoolin’ Bonus “Boston Memories”

00:00 - Rehearsal for Jim Irsay in Boston, MA - Pink Floyd cover
02:22 - J. Geils Band cover - Musta Got Lost
02:45 - Huddle in rehearsal
03:20 - Playing Kenny Wayne Shepherd's guitar / Huddling

Well kids, I played a super fun show at "The Gaaahhden" in Boston last night with the Jim Irsay band.

Go ahead and say what you want about Irsay being a money grubbing billionaire (like you guys always do anytime I mention his name)......but he put on an absolutely free concert for the entire city of Boston that probably cost him millions solely out of the goodness of his heart..

Thanks to all the many Homeskoolers who came out and showed their comfy HS t shirts.

Just some random rehearsal clips, starring...
Duke Levine, Kevin Cronin, Kenny Aronoff, Kenny Wayne Shepard, Mike Mills, Ebo, Carmella Ramsey , Mike Wanchic, Danny Nucci, Michael Ramos and many others

UNLESS of course you happen to be one of THOSE guys….

oh, you know the ones i mean…the ones that love to complain about not being able to hear every single word of dialogue perfectly clearly in a totally free video….after 50 years of working with power tools with no hearing protection.

I simply cannot deal with any more of the dumb ass “biggest guitar store in North America and they can’t afford a microphone?” comments

Please keep in mind that these are extremely loose casual conversations that are recorded with a simple iPhone….just a few dudes who have spent their entire lives in the old guitar racket sharing a few laughs, and a couple brews (courtesy of dear Wayne Baswell) and the occasional “hot take” on a particularly touchy subject

Greg “Old World” Voros
Eric “Ebo” Borash
Corey Terrell
George Gruhn
Geoffrey from Atlanta

and a very special thanks to sweet Tosa from Atlanta for holding her arms up for over an hour straight filming this video. (Try that sometime folks…after 15 minutes it starts becoming a real problem)

Like all Homeskoolin’ products…this video is meant to be taken in good fun.
it is not meant to offend anyone…

please people, if any of the views expressed here-in don’t align with your own….please do not take it personally.

I am pretty sure you guys would rather see some raw unedited real shit rather than some smoothed out corporate PC bullshit….am i right?

Besides there is already enough people out there who hate me for providing 600 free guitar lessons.

Thanks for watching kids…please visit this amazing store if you ever get to Nashville…it is really something special.
George has been the king of the vintage guitar mountain since 1970.

Editor’s note:
I meant to say “tremotone”, not “frequensator” when I was referring to a few of Gibson’s questionable moves during the golden age.

Homeskoolin’ Bonus Jam, “Sequential Circus”

00:00 - Keyboard playing

There have indeed been some exciting changes in my little retro analog living room keyboard set up lately….
First off…
I am having an absolute BLAST with this new Mellotron Micro keyboard that just showed up.

My God, this thing is sooooo cool. It was basically love at first sight for me when I tried one of these for the first time on a session recently. It’s really all you need…I highly recommend these to anyone out there who digs Mellotrons…you can get these on EBay for about a grand.

And secondly, I traded my old mid 70’s round top Rhodes Suitcase 73 for a later square top Suitcase 73 model from 1980. I have always preferred the cleaner brighter sound of the later Rhodes models personally, although most players seem to prefer the older ones.

My pal David Crutcher (who you guys met on some of my earlier vids explaining the intricacies of the old Hammond B3) completely refurbished this Rhodes I just bought.
He rebuilt the action and voiced it. It feels WONDERFUL and the thing just sounds incredible. I couldn’t be happier with it.

The one that I traded him is up for grabs now if anyone out there is looking.
David can sell it to you as is (in need of some work) for somewhere in the 2K range, OR, you can have him refurbish it for you and make it primo…which I HIGHLY recommend for somewhere in the 3K range (which is still way under the insane prices people are asking for old Rhodes pianos on the internet).

If anyone is interested I can hook you up with him….just lemme know.
