The woodshed is the coolest place in America. For most of the year, the shed’s function is storing wood or possibly curing tobacco, but for a period of about two weeks it is emptied.

During this time, the shed can be used for throwing parties involving playing pong with 9loko.

A flaw of the woodshed is it’s thin roof which allows sound to easily escape and piss off anyone too lame or stupid to be in the woodshed.

AKA shedding, woodshedding is one of the most ambiguous jazz terms around (but the version I learned from old time players will be posted here). Sheddin is the act of intensely practicing your instrument after being publicly humiliated by your bad playing. This humiliation might be from a terrible solo or from not knowing the key the piece is played in (not being able to improvise in all keys). Shedding usually includes

This is derived from getting your ass beaten (with scraps from a woodshed).
