Video: Help me scrape the mucus off my brain (Ween cover)

Well, I must have listened to Pretty Good Musician's ukulele songs about two dozen times today. The end result was that I really, really, really want to get my ukulele novelty band off of the ground. But, today I had to settle for recording a version of "Help me scrape the mucus off my brain", by Ween. I played this one with my Kala Pocket Ukulele because it's been awhile since I used it in a video and because I look pretty ridiculous playing it.  It's just sooo damn tiny.

Anyway, this song is off of the Ween record 12 Golden Country Greats.  It's definitely one of their better records and songs.

  1. Wow! Just wanted to say a) nice cover and b) I am super flattered by your kind attentions and high praise. No doubt this will be an incentive for us to make our Bookface page suck less.

    In the meantime, I hope you’ll enjoy this song which I called “Papikash: Too Much Pepper in My…”

    How do you find the pocket uke? I was looking at them today for no good reason.

    Also, we use an Oscar Schmidt baritone far more than we use the cigar box, which is a steel string tenor and we juuuust started using a soprano with D6 tuning.

  2. Ian, you guys rule. The high praise is totally warranted. I like the Pocket uke, it has a pretty high tone but it’s well made and pretty dang good-looking. I need a better baritone. I have a Rogue today, I just bought it cause it was like $20, but I think it’s almost “all used up”. The Butthole Surfers cover rules!

  3. I had a strange revelation yesterday: the better I get at playing ukulele, the less I want to play the baritone. I mean, we need it to get a robust sound in our recordings, but, it’s just not “ukulele.” You know what I mean?
