Homeskoolin’ PSA..... “Ain't Talkin' Bot Love”

00:00 - Little acoustic jamming
00:22 - Hey guys! / PSA about "ass pipe"

The scam bots are back.

The best thing you can do is just report it to youtube.

Don’t fall for it kids….it’s just the work of a bunch of failed rockstars and string lockers.

Cool spectre at the end of this vid right as the power went out right?

Those are just my angels that tell me what notes to play…glad they are around

Thank God for Ebay….say it with me people….
“Thank God for Ebay”

I figure if I am giving away 45 years worth of licks for free, the least you non football fans out there could do is suffer through a 2 minute video that has nothing to do with guitar, solely for the sake of pure nostalgia... man, just the smell of this 50 year old book takes me back....

Homeskoolin’ Bonus “A-rack-nophobia”

00:00 - Rack gear exploration

Hello friends, if Toto is your Beatles, this video is for you.

If you are NOT a fan of the 80’s and 90’s west coast session scene, this video is NOT for you….and i suggest you potentially try another video.

Please send offers to:

For the record, Dann Huff is one of the most quality human beings i have ever been around.

Anyone that knows him or has worked with him, like the two beautiful fellas in this particular video, will tell you the same thing.

He is just a lovely person on every level, and he has earned all of his many achievements in this world with his absolutely amazing set of ears….

I have spent countless hours on the other side of the glass from this fella over the last 20 years or so…and i will tell you first hand that he hears EVERYTHING…..and i mean EVERYTHING.

You cannot “sneak” ANYTHING past Dann, and trust me, nobody is “sneakier” than me when it comes to “sneaking” stuff on sessions.

Brandon Hood is a straight shooter, a hard worker….one of my favorite producers to work with. He is the guy who single-handedly pulled me out of my three year retirement from sessions, and i will never let him live that one down.

Seth Morton is a beautiful guy, a FANTASTIC engineer and he is AVAILABLE TO HIRE for all your recording needs.

I took a brief hiatus from some heavy gambling to film this little odyssey…this one goes out to Ray Dietrich…who changed the world forever in October of 1962…exactly 60 years ago…wow

Big thanks to all those who watch regularly and steal all my licks and concepts…use them in good health my friends.

Today’s amplification provided by Benson Electronics from Portland Oregon…the model is a very limited run of 3x10 tweed Bandmaster clones they recently made called a “Benmaster”

somewhat inconsequential side note:
3:04 to 3:06 is a good illustration of the kind of musical "telepathy" that can only come from one person...(the subconscious break in the rhythm in EXACTLY the same spot on both instruments)...that kinda shit fascinates me.
