The woody woodpecker - Venezuelan Cuatro

If you’re a fan of traditional Latin American instruments, the Venezuelan Cuatro is an instrument you won’t want to miss. With its four strings and unique shape, this small instrument has a sound all its own. And, in the hands of the talented musician Fraimer Reyes, it truly comes alive.

One example of what can be achieved with the venezuelan cuatro is Reyes’ rendition of “The Woody Woodpecker.” This classic cartoon character was created in 1940, but it still holds a special place in the hearts of many adults who remember watching it on black and white or color TV.

This version features Reyes showing off his incredible talent and mastery of the Cuatro. By effortlessly navigating through this upbeat tune, he demonstrates how versatile this instrument can be. With every pluck of the strings, he brings to life a playful melody that will make you want to dance along.
