Make your Arduino play the French Can Can using a buzzer. No pliers. No fires. It's so straight forward that it's as scandalous the Can Can implies.
This instructable covers some introductory electronics info, and focuses on writing scripts using the Arduino IDE to make an Arduino play basic musical tones.
Step 1: Ingredients
I bought mine here at sparkfun.com as part of a starter kit (also includes the buzzer used in this instructable).
Buzzer (CEM-1203 used in this instructable)
This particular buzzer can be found here at sparkfun.com for under $2.00.
Prevents damage to the Arduino (more details later)
Breadboard (mini breadboard used in this instructable)
Allows testing of electronic components without soldering
Two Jumper Wires
Connect the Arduino with electric components on breadboard
Allows code (known as sketches) to be loaded to the Arduino from the computer
This program allows you to script sketches and load them to the Arduino. It can be found here at arduino.cc for Mac, Linux, and PC.
One cannot play the Can Can without finesse!
