The Moaning Cuica

The person that helped me with my report was my mom. It took us about one hour to get it done. My mom helped with the drilling, I did the rest. I used a coffee can, a chop stick, a piece of cloth, and duct tape.

My instrument is played by taking wet cloth and pulling on the chop stick. You change the pitch by pulling hard or soft. It is a very loud noise. The timbre sounds like somebody moaning or squeaking. The Dynamics are loud by pulling hard. You can make it soft by pulling softer.
