My instrument is made out of a bucket, a pole, and a string tied to the bucket and the pole. It works by plucking the string that vibrates in the bucket. It is in the string family because it has a string and you pluck the string.

You hold the string in different places to make different notes, the shorter the string the higher the note. You can also make a screeching sound by dragging the strum piece down the string.
