Every Friday is Funky Friday on Planet Mondo

And today FF brings you the ‘Texas Cannonball’, the ‘Big King Of The Strings’
Mr Freddy King – wearing his guitar strap like a shoulder holster and using a crazy but killer technique that’s all fingers and thumbs.

Treat yourself and watch him tear it up on I’m Tore Down – check out those have a go-go backing dancers
