    This is a home made “instrument.” You make various pitches by moving the neck (stick) back and forth — shortening and lengthening the string. It really doesn’t make precise pitches but will closely approximate pitches. It almost adds more of a rhythm than a true bass sound.

    Psst….that’s my husband playing the bass. He “sat in” the circle for a bit…until his fingers started hurting! LOL

    My favorite Christmas movie is Emmett Otter Jug Band Christmas. In order to form a jug band, Emmett has to put a hole in his mother’s washtub. Several months ago, we use to go to the Flea Market in Nashville, Kenny wanted a wash tub so he could make a washtub bass. We looked everywhere, about the time wewere ready to give up, I saw a washtub under a bunch of stuff, got it for $3.00. Needless to day, he has yet to put a hole in it, after he sees this, he’ll probably do it and start playing his new washtub bass!

    I have seen warsch tub bass before, but his bandmates must be a far off as he needs binos to see them! Handsome man Sue. I myself just replaced my PC with a dual processing un-mac.

    I think photographing people is challenging, at least for an introvert like me. I notice you are doing more people photography–good for you!
