Who needs an instrument when you can make music with a vegetable! All you need is a carrot and some simple tunes – and here’s a video to show you how it’s done.
Dan Woods is a musician and one half of music and comedy act Can You Dig It (find out more here).
In this video he takes you step-by-step through the surprisingly simple process of turning a root vegetable into a recorder.
Well, technically, it’s an ocarina, but that’s a detail.
There are detailed instructions over on Dan's YouTube channel – and as he points out, if it all goes wrong you can always turn your recorder into some tasty soup instead!
