Excellent book about the history of diddley bows

https://homemadeblues.wordpress.com/e-book/

Guys, if you have any interest in diddley bows and the history of instruments check out this fine book by Phil Thomas. The link takes you to a free ebook that's quite informative and interesting. His video Desert Surfin' has the link and it's close to dropping off CBN's front page.

Read it. It is what it purports to be: a personal ramble through one man's search for the DB's musical origins. I personally think the references he provides are actually the best bits. But it's free, and it got me through a partially-sleepless night, so it's all good.
