Structure of Bamboo Guitar
Bamboo Guitar has short bamboo culms. Only a portion of it is dressed for converting it into a musical instrument. The remaining part of the guitar remains unattended. The thick upper layer of the cylindrical culm is sliced into two veins like strings leaving either end intact to the body. These strings are raised with the help of pieces of bamboo peg. Some of them retain the sliding mechanism of Rider Bridge.
In order to get effective resonance of each strike on the string, holes are cut on the lower edge of these riders facing the tube. The strings are struck with sliced bamboo stick. Some have a hole directly on the sounding board made of bamboo.
