Pluck them, bang them, shake them, and blow into them! These instruments?from wood temple gongs to water drums and stamping tubes?produce every type of joyful noise. Make a fun ?gourd orchestra” of rattles, like a Mesoamerican Indian rain stick and African shekere; a Caribbean guiro; a gorgeous mbira or thumb piano; and friction drums that wail or roar. There are instruments from near and far, from the unusual to the familiar banjo and guitar. Tips on choosing, cleaning, and sealing a gourd, and decorating and playing the finished instrument, help to create beautiful music.

    They are probably sold out by now. This is an awesome fantastic book. I have made a lot of stuff out of gourds. I'm normally not that impressed with gourd books but this one is perfect in every way except they both arrived damaged. will surely make it up to me because they are really dependable and care about their customers. Trust me, they do. That's why I keep shopping.
