The Lion Sleeps Tonight (performed on homemade instruments)

How about a little electric jug band action to kick off your week? This classic tune from The Tokens never gets old. I did a rendition on electric CBG, electric washboard, pizza paddle bass, electric kazoo, and a soup can microphone. Why not?

Thanks Derek. The ol' pizza paddle is one of my favorite DIY instruments.
