The Canjo

The ingenious One String Canjo is probably the easiest stringed instrument in the world to play. Based on the "Diddley Bow" which originated in the USA, the Canjo consists of a tin or wooden box , a wooden neck and a string.  The Spatchcock and Wurzill Canjo is fretted using a dulcimer or diatonic scale, which basically translates as a major scale, or the white keys of a piano.

 

By using a very simple play by numbers system even someone who has never picked up a guitar before can play a recognisable tune within 60 seconds of holding a Canjo. The Canjo is supplied with the booklet  "Introduction to the Canjo"
