Homeskoolin’ Bonus “Sunday Leftovers”

00:00 - That amazing thing Tom does - playing
03:17 - Bag Men band live footage
04:55 - Electric football

A classic Larry hodgepodge of random footage to help get you through the last NFL-less Sunday we are going to have to deal with for a good while….

the live band jam in the middle is the Bag Men…a new trio project starring Steve Gorman, Luther Dickinson and Nick “Nicky G” Govrik....caught in action at The Basement in Nashville TN....the OG Basement.

Chiefs/Bears electric football game ended up being stalled after a group decision to eat some Rao’s pasta....that segment stars Scank, Marshall and Mikey Gossin from the Gloriana's.

The board of directors wanted me to mention that if one was so compelled to throw a "Sunday offering" in the Homeskoolin' collection plate, one could do that by going to PayPal and using the address

and totally unrelated...this is an AMAZING video...

“Forgotten Guitar Gear” with Uncle Larry (Episode 1)

00:00 - Montage and new idea
01:27 - Conn Strobotuner
08:15 - Lesson: Learn to use the strobotuner

The legendary 70's Conn ST-11 Strobotuner

Any tech kids out there who are:
A) not annoying
B) are into cool old guitar gear
C) happen to be a bad ass video editor with all the necessary gear
hit me at

interesting side note...
the session rig case that is shown in the pics at the beginning is still sitting in my garage...
it's actually a really nice case...kind of an odd interior configuration i will admit, but i remember my cartage guy Richie (who has been with me pretty much since the beginning and is rarely impressed by ANYTHING) commenting on what a nice case that was

anyway if anyone wants that it's yours for 300.00 cash

on that note....the tall grey session amp rack case that is featured in my rig rundown (rundown rig) video is also available for 300.00....that is the original head rack case that i used on A MILLION sessions...yeah, it's a little wobbly but it could be fixed up easy...might have a slight beer smell
