Building a Diddley Bow / Cigarbox combination
 
05:16
In 2009 this was my first attempt to build a stringed instrument. Initially the idea was to build a simple diddley bow. Then it got out of hands because I didn't want it to be just a couple of nails in a piece of wood with some strings. So, this is what happened. I must admit I learned a lot and it gave me inspiration to keep building instruments :-)
