Homeskoolin’ Bonus, “Analawg Dawgs”

00:00 - Building a song
08:58 - Prophet-5

Day 4 of a 7 day marathon session, where the Amazing Dawgs are re-united once again working on writing and recording a new Ann Wilson record at Smoakstack Studio in Nashville TN.

In this clip Uncle Larry does what any decent friend does when a guy is playing a pad on an old analog synth…he is working the cut off filter.

Amazing Dawg Paul adds some magic glue to the track on an old Prophet 5….while bandmates Amazing Dawg Tony and Amazing Dawg Sean look on in horror.

Zack Zinck absolutely KILLING it on the engineering gig....a top notch professional, and about the nicest, easiest guy to work with you could ever find on this planet.

There is no official “producer” per se on this record….so what you are seeing here is four hardened, brutally opinionated studio veterans who are all trying to function in a completely democratic fashion…which can be challenging at times….but so far so good.

Ann’s vocal on the track is muted during this filming, but you can hear an epic Paul Moak guitar solo at the end of this track, as well as some hypnotically adult acoustic piano stylings from a relatively unknown Youtuber from Cleveland.

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

00:00 - Stamp book

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.
