Around a hundred years ago Delta Blues musicians made and played their own basic one-string ‘guitars’ and created powerful music. Sometimes known as ‘diddley bows’, ‘jitterbugs’ or ‘one-strings’ , the instruments were built from a wide variety of available (often discarded) materials. The single string was either hammered or plucked and different note pitches were obtained by sliding a bottle neck (or a key or any hard object) along the wire or guitar string .
It has been re-invented as the Nineboys Wedge, and we have it in stock, full of amazing possibilities. Watch the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktPPZKe6cBg and then come in and try ity out!
