Build your own elemental slide guitar, the Diddly Bow!
This handmade instrument has its origins in early African-American blues music, based on instruments from Africa often played by children. Diddly bows can be made very simply with a wooden board with a single wire string stretched between two screws, played by plucking while varying the pitch with a metal or glass slide held in the other hand. A glass bottle is used as the bridge, which helps magnify the sound. The deep twangy sound is full of soul, and it’s great for beginners.
