GutBucketeer My Stumpfiddle Demo Video (11) My Stumpfiddle Demo Video 06 Apr 07

Last year I made a souped up stumpfiddle (or for those in OZ a langerhorn) out of a crutch and a bunch of other stuff. I just figured out how to load the video on my Myspace site and thought some of you might enjoy it. The cans act as both tuned drums and small washboards. There are two weed wacker strings, that are whacked for tuneful percussion. There are also beer bottle tops, a small frying pan, and a can top cymbal. Check out the kick bass. It has a door spring on the back for the spring sound towards the end.

Note, that I AM NOT A percusionist, so the video is really to show the possiblities of the thing. In fact, I would be interested in finding out more on how the instrument is played/used.

Here is the link:
