Here’s James Hill‘s recipe for playing Jimi Hendrix’s 1968 classic, “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” on the uke. Yes, the uke:
1 Mya-Moe baritone ukulele (Low G – G – B – E)
1 guitar amp (Fender Blues Junior or equivalent)
1 bass amp (15 inch)
1 line splitter (Radial ABY box)
1 Diamond J-Drive pedal (made in Halifax, NS!)
4 busted strings
2 broken fingernails
Season to taste and serve hot!
