Guiro

Photo of a Guiro

Pronounced "We're-row" (rhymes with "weirdo") this instrument is played by scraping the side or tapping it (anywhere). Experimenting with the positions of the scraper (stick) can produce some interesting effects. Hint - see if you can make a family of "frogs" by moving the scraper closer or farther from where you are holding it in relation to the instrument.
