"Twelve String Boxo" by Shellaine

My instrument is called the "Twelve String Boxo". It is made of a Pringles can, an empty Kleenex box, and six different size rubber bands. It is decorated with colored construction paper.

I made the sounds by holding the box and by plucking the rubber bands. I hold it tight so I can keep a steady beat and make a good rhythm. I can make the pitch go high if I pluck the small, thin bands. And I can make the pitch go low by plucking the big, wide bands. You can change the tempo of the rhythm depending on the speed of how you pluck the rubber bands.
