I made a new anime drawing of a musical instrument. This one is called the Diddley Bow. The instrument was created in West Africa. It was often played by children. The instrument became more common place in rural south America around the 1930s. The instrument is normally made at home. The glass bottle is used to amplify the sound. Since it is considered a kid instrument, a lot of folks stop playing them when they grow up. There are not a lot of recordings of this music instrument. I hope you find this information about this musical instrument amusing. My...

This drawing features quite the elegant musical instrument. It goes by the name of Dan Tranh. The Dan Tranh is originally from Vietnam. It is based on the Guzheng of China. It can be played alone or with other musical instruments. Folks can also sing to this musical instrument. The Dan Tranh first appeared around the late 13th century.

The musicians play the instrument with the right hand, and they bend the strings with the left hand. The traditional form of playing...

Every so often, I try to see some new anime shows. I like anime, but I rarely find anything that doesn’t make me want to poke my eyes out. I tend to see them on the Crunchyroll. We have a weird history with Crunchyroll. It is ancient history for some. Still, I am not one to rant about the past. I can tell you a little bit about it though. Back when Jojo came out, a lot of English anime websites did not get the joke of it. It was through our insistence that Crunchyroll the first Jojo Season. I...

In this drawing, I feature a maiden playing the Cello. The cello is like a very big violin. It has a nice, sad type of music to it. I frankly enjoy a lot better the sound of the cello. The violin is a little too upbeat for my taste. As to be expected, the Cello is a pretty common orchestral musician instrument. It gets about the same attention as the violin. There are less cello players mainly because of the size of the instrument. The cello was invented around the 1530s. It belongs to the violin family. Some of the...
