YouTube is full of videos that feature aspiring musicians doing unique covers of their favourite songs. Some are good, some are bad and some are so utterly amazing that we decide to post them to the JACK blog and share them with you. YouTuber Davie504‘s video of him playing bass covers of the Red Hot Chili Peppers using an actual red hot chili pepper as his guitar pick is one of those videos.

Davie504 goes through RHCP favourites like “Can’t Stop”, “Higher Ground”, “Dani California”, “Scar Tissue” and more in this short video that is sure to give you a new appreciation for all things capsicum.

Who knew a chili pepper not named Flea could be so funky?
