The Shaking Gourd

by Eddie


My instrument is called the Shaking Gourd. My Mom helped me make my instrument. She showed me how to spray paint then I painted it.


It took three to four hours from start to finish. I used spray paint and regular paint, a paint brush, and a gourd.


My sound is produced by shaking my gourd. It is a high pitched sound. You can change my loud and soft pitch by shaking it hard or soft. The timbre of my instrument is pounding, clinky, and dull.
