Step 1: Step: 1
First gather all the materials needed below, Five glass bottle that can be found in the recycle bin, sharpie or any dark color writing tool which can be found in stores and duct tape which can also be found in stores. To make it be able to tune you will have to fill it with water, and measure the water in each bottle with a measuring cup.
Step 2: Step: 2
Fill up each bottle with water from highest to lowest amounts of water and use a online tuner to tune each bottle that you filled up with water.
Step 3: How to Play
So you want to put the bottom part of your lip on the bottle but not to much then blow from the top with your top lip, and when you get the hang of it you can play many different songs.
Step 4: Last Step
This last step is your choice, next you can make a base if you want to but you dont have, so to make the base you will need a long piece of foam or card board, I used foam, then you want to trace holes for the bottles, next cut the pieces you traced and place the bottles in safely, if the side parts break on the platform then you can just tape it or glue it back on.
