    Default What's this stringed instrument called?

    I don't think it's come up on the forum before.

    Robert Johnson's mother, describing blues musicians:
    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."
    Lomax, Alan, The Land where The Blues Began, NY: Pantheon, 1993, p.14.

    That is a three stringed beer can guitar, a variation on the cigar box guitar concept.

    "Awesomely Played! 3 String Guitar Made Out Of Beer Cans! Great One Man Band!"

    If you want to make one there are even websites that sell parts:

    Need a chord chart?
    "Bargain instruments are no bargains if you can't play them". These are the words of J. Garber.
