Walk of Life (on CBG & kazoo) | Dire Straits cover

I've had this song stuck in my head for a while so I decided it was time to do a cover of it. When I figured out the chords, I realized it was missing a lot without the organ line, so I added that on the kazoo. Happy Sunday!

Those are some good ideas BrianQ.

That’s totally doable? Saturate a cigar in epoxy resin, drill out the center after it hardens?

I have seen a kazoo made from an old 60’s gag cigar made of plastic? You see some pretty odd instruments at mardi gra’s down in New Orleans!!

Thank t-belly & Kevin. A cigar kazoo... hmmm... that could be an interesting one.

Awesome!  Now if you could only make a kazoo from a cigar...hmmmmm.

Thanks John and AD. I usually pre-record these vids, often the Sunday before. That way I can keep dolling out a steady stream of content.

It's funny you say that BrianQ. I learned the chords and thought it sounded so empty without the organ. The all of a sudden it hit me... Kazoo!!!
