Introduction: One String Altoids Guitar

This is a simple project that is good for beginners and is fun to build. You could build it for fun or if you have a son in need of the music merit badge if he is in scouts. It only took 30 minutes to an hour, so it's pretty cheap and fun! Double win!

Step 1: Materials

Since I have decided to share this after I built it, fail! I can only tell you what the materials are. wooden ruler, an Altoids can, a wooden dowel, an eye hook, a guitar string, hot glue, Spray paint.

Step 2: Watch the Video

I can explain the guitar a lot better in the video than typing it all out. http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=HAFDchKs7TU

Is the screw a good tuning peg

The screw does an alright job, but tuning is difficult and you constantly have to tune it.
