A discussion with my son on hammer ons I don't think Grandma appreciates dads zepp guitar school

At 0600 in morning she grabbed her crossword and coffee and headed out too the patio. Come on nana itís not like weíre jamming Marshall stacks , quite the opposite weíre using 1 watt tube amps. So todayís lesson plan is zepp Iím gonna crawl, our one son was picking at it.

So dad had to get involved as in Grabbing our favorite herd member ok well dads favorite made in japan tokai Les Paul I said fellas I been in a longer relationship with this beautiful tone beast longer than your mom 35 years to be exact.

I remember the day we met in GIESSEN west Germany I hopped the train from KIRCH GOENS I had cash cuz my infantry batt we just pulled off a FTX field training exercise, we recovered our gear then like week later we bagged ass for back to back grafenwoer and then hohensfeltd. So I was loaded up with cash fellas and I went to pick her up at guitar store.

Yes dad we have heard this love story many times in how you and the Tokai met. I said boys these guitars sent Gibson into a oh shit the masses our gonna find out we been price gouging.


So the song opens from C then to G sharp the f shaped G sharp then slide down too the f shaped G to get that pinch hammer on. So we had to go the tapes like the NFL instant replay we had to go to the album well internet album vinyl is a dinosaur. so after the A to G to F is there a hammer on with the F cord , when the song is coming out chorus from the G to the F then back to intro C.

In that from the F to the C there is a hammer on B string. so ok I turn to my mother in law in dining room as we were all at table.

Teb - what do you hear I hear a hammer on in that F itís on B string.

Mother in law or AKA NANA -I think Iíll go to the patio for some peace and quiet itís much to early for this.

Teb - Why nana itís never to early for zeppelin

So as nana leaves and our sons smiling at me why because I just got my ass verbally kicked by a 78 year old Scottish woman. I smiled back at my boys and started playing ZZ Top party on the patio ,my one son reaches over and mutes the neck no dad.

5. When my youngest son was in high school he formed a band

called The Unfinished. I let them practice in my band shed.
So they land a gig at a teen club in Tucson and as they're
packing up I asked son if he had a backup guitar. He didn't so I let him take
my old Ibanez strat knockoff, a truly nice instrument.
The next day asked him where it was. He said it was over at the
drummers house. Somehow he kept forgetting to bring it home,
then finally broke down and said he had left it at the teen club
100 miles away in Tucson.
I got on the phone and called them immediately but they claimed
they had never seen it.
He still owes me ten years later.
