Diddley Bow
6.5 in x 8.5 ft
(plywood, 7 nails, glass jar, steel wire, metal)

I collaborated with my friend Kim Chayeb and created an 8.5 foot long electric diddley bow! For those who don't know what that is, it's basically a very simplified version of a guitar.

The plywood is hand-cut. We connected a contact microphone that Kim made in her sound class to the wire and hooked it up to an amp. We also made three different sized sliders out of scrap metal.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
