Viaceslav Svedov: Solo Bass Cover of RHCP’s “Easily” on a Contrabass Balalaika

I did a double-take when I saw this new video by Viaceslav Svedov. That’s because Viaceslav decided to take the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Easily” and try it out on a Contrabass Balalaika.

“…It’s freaking hard to play, but that beast sounds good!” Viaceslav said, adding “Thank YOU Mother Russia! … and thanks to RHCP.”

What a beast!

I had to look up the Balalaika to find out more. Check out Wikipedia’s page about this instrument.
