He did a short one yesterday - I only caught a part of it. If you receiving a notifications about JOE POSTS ( you can select it in your settings) the message will appear  when he will start streaming. then tap the message - and your are in. I am going to be at work at this time - but I hope I will try and watch it, hope I will. You can also ask questions there too! Or just send him hearts and thumbs up smile

   Joe's team will post the video later on youtube, but it is still available on chicagomusicexchange instagram page today. Very interesting and informative Nerdville videos as always, wonderfull tour of his living aka Green Shag room and Orange Couch room smile And absolutely mesmerizing few minutes of Joe playing.

  I did catch the actual live stream and it is a little different from the video that actually will be posted. They deleted about quarter of all comments, was very interesting to observe which ones smile, the same thing happened with his previous stream smile.    Joe answered very few comments directly, and a lot of them indirectly ( which is his usual manner of communicating with his most devoted fans )
  Joe mentioned in the video that it is on time delay, and that he is very careful and self aware of what he is saying lol, so no off limits topics were discussed smile

  PS: too bad I don't play GOLF, otherwise I would definitely buy Joe's GOLF tea shirts which he desined by himself ( Joe plays GOLF, who knew! ) https://shop.jbonamassa.com/collections … ri-fit-hat  : Edit: oh nelly! Nerdville Golf Balls! https://shop.jbonamassa.com/products/ne … -set-of-12
