La Perdrix Day 2

After the 10 o’clock meeting deciding our agenda for the day, I set about finding things for making a cigar box guitar. It was trickier than I thought it might be. I gathered several different objects and tried out a few different wires and fishing lines for the strings. I settled on a strong slightly stretchy fishing line and set about making.

I had some trouble getting a whiskey box guitar together with complications concerning the neck. I soon turned to experimenting with a deep aluminium pot and ended up making an Ooud type instrument. I’m currently working on the tuning mechanism and am confidant that it’s going to work ( had to pack up for dinner). I’m cooking tomorrow but hopefully I’ll grab a couple of minutes too finish it off in at some point.
