One-string Canjo


Easily build a one-string canjo (tin banjo) instrument

I like to make my own musical instruments. I thought I take a look at what you can get for cheap online. I found this one string “Canjo” and had it shipped to me. I was pleasantly surprised! Within 20 minutes I had assembled and tuned it. It’s fretted diatonically like a dulcimer, making it very easy to play by ear. An excellent website I follow called Cigar Box Guitar has a bunch of songs to learn. Great starter project for young and old. Really fun to play too.
