The Boxie Guitar
by Anna R.
I used a cardboard shoe box and cut a hole in the top. I taped, then stapled the rubber bands to the inside lid of the shoe box. Then I cut a hole on the side and slid a cardboard tube in and glued it. The final step was painting the shoe box.
The pitch is changed by tightening the rubber bands to make a higher sound or by using different sizes of rubber bands.
The volume is changed by plucking the strings harder or lighter.
