Tom and Beebee are away drinking all the whisky on the Scottish island of Islay, BUT…still find time (and sobriety) to sit down with guitars and nerd out on a special episode.

This week they answer listener feedback email to the grade exam episodes and talk about the parallels of wood obsession between whisky connoisseurs and guitar nerds.

Next, they break the “this podcast isn’t a lesson” line, and talk about expanding the number of chords that work within a key. Surprise, there are a lot more than 7!

This is a fun teaser and a window into some of the more lessony type content that is in the Patreon bonus episodes and Practise Posse live streams.

This weeks aftershow bonus for the Patreon edit features no banter, but Tom and Beebee in a whisky fuelled jam over a couple of standards. Enjoy :)
