Hi, I'm FriendlyFred and running this blog. I play 'em all from soprano to baritone, acoustic and electric. Yes, big hands can handle small instruments. Enjoy strumming around and have a good day !

Chili Monster

I just discovered the videos of Chili Monster from the UK. He's a uke player and teaches the instrument too. Here are two weird and really entertaining videos: " The Monster Mash " was originally recorded by Bobby " Boris " Pickett in 1962. This rendition reminds me somehow of the Addams Family:
    This a laid-back reggae tune called " Don't Knock It ( Till You've Tried It ) ". He has a full voice and produced a nice backing for this original. Irie vibes.
For more informations on Chili Monsters tutorials, songs etc. just visit his website.

    Thanks for the write up. The monster mash was meant to be a cross between Addams family and The Bonzo Dog Doodah Band so you’re spot on there! and thanks for liking my first foray into Ukureggae …
