Homeskoolin’ Bonus…”Studio Rat”

00:00 - Playing on a session

At various points in my life i have actually considered just having a pair of headphones surgically attached to my head…but alas i never go through with it.

There was a funny little chat on the session today about which Nashville studio guys are known for having the loudest headphones historically…there are a couple guys who’s names ALWAYS gets mentioned in that conversation.

I ain’t gonna lie, I like my phones pretty bangin’, but i have been around some cats who have their phones so fucking loud you can’t even get near them, let alone put them over your ears.

It’s truly a wonder that i am not totally deaf after basically having headphones on for eight hours a day for about 25 years.

The tune i was playing in this clip is just a little “sea shanty” feel in D….6/8 time signature. That’s my old ‘38 Bone I’m floggin’ on.

Today was a double at Sound Emporium A for a guy named Corey Smith, i think he’s from Georgia but he is part of the Texas country scene…

The engineer was Chad Carlson
Producer was Erik Dylan
Me and Rob Mcnelley on guitars
“The Craig” Young on bass
Nir Z on drums
Jenee Fleenor on fiddle
Andy Sheridan on keys

Homeskoolin’ Bonus “My Clone Sleeps Alone”

00:00 - Play through of a clone of a Fender Tweed Deluxe.

After original Fender Tweed Deluxes reached 8-10k i finally decided to give up hunting one and have my buddy Mike Scaggs make me this killer clone. He did a wonderful job and the amp sounds amazing…you can clearly hear in this clip how bad ass this thing sounds. If any of you guys out there are hunting a cool hand built amp at an EXTREMELY reasonable price look no further. I have known this guy for almost 30 years and he is about as trustworthy of a person as you will ever meet on this planet. Check out old Scank and his amps at

Homeskoolin’ Sunday Night Bonus Jam, “Lead Leopard”

00:00 - Def Leppard - "Bringin' On the Heartbreak"

Ya’ know friends, they don’t write ‘em like they used to…takin you back to 1981 with another Mutt Lange creation that stands the test of time.

I have always heard that the AMAZING backing vocals on this track were all actually performed by Mutt himself (uncredited on the album liner notes of course)….

I’m not on the instagram…but i wanted to tell you guys that you should check out what Dean Deleo is doing on there recently. He has been putting up videos where he goes through the Trip The Witch record track by track and shows you some of the instruments he used and some of the parts he played on the record.

Basically a much higher quality much more tasteful and professional version of what I did a few weeks back when i had the C19….and i went through the tracks blabbering on about how hungover i was.

Thanks for watching the show kids
