I saw an ad for a Stratocaster on Reverb a couple days ago where a guy described the color as “seafood green”….oh man, that got me…

Anyway, here’s a 17 minute ramble from a guy who hasn’t been around many people any older than 9 years old in several days.

If anyone out there knows what issue of guitar player mag i got “writ up” in recently please tell me, cuz i can’t find the fucking thing....like who is on the cover?

totally unrelated, dig this crazy video....my son watched this and all he said afterwards was "knuckleheads..." kinda under his breath......hahaaaaa, wonder where he got that?


Thanks for watching friends

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.
