The Shaking Gourd
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 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.
