Title for Group F: Diddley Bow

Short description for Group F:

Diddley Bow is a single string instrument, with its origin rooted in early Blues music. Due to its simple construction, they are largely home made.  And because of this, there is a vast variety of designs and implementation that can easily be found.

Its basic principle is fixing a metal wire over a solid structure, in which is able to hold enough tension for the wire to sound when plugged. Different structural material and wire tension would contributes to the tonal variation of the results. It can be played by

picking, hit with a stick, or even bowed.

The aim of the workshop therefore is to produce Diddley Bow, using as much as recycled material as possible. Abandoned timber, broken instruments and other household objects are usually a good place to start . We will then rehearse with the instruments we made and play music together!
