How To Build a One-String Diddley Bow
Roots Music According to
Justin Johnson: 
One-String Diddley Bow

The One-String Diddley Bow is the Godfather of all stringed instruments, and is the ​​ultimate personal trainer for aspiring guitarists. It is no coincidence that this simple, single-stringed guitar was the first instrument ever played by Blues Pioneers like Muddy Waters, Lightning Hopkins, Elmore James, B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix, and, of course, Bo Diddley.  This DVD will teach you guitar in the same way these legends learned, using musical examples from several of these iconic musicians.
