Strum, Strum, Strum

For my instrument I made a harp. I named it Strum, Strum, Strum. I got that name because of the way you produce sound. You produce sound by simply plucking or strumming it.

My father helped me make this. We screwed the wood together in a square. Then we put holes through the top and bottom. We took a piece of fishing line and put a sinker on an end.

Then we put the string through the holes at the top, and then put an eyebolt at the end with a wing nut. Then I decorated it with crayons and stickers. It produces 6 different pitches.
