I Made a... Wacky Rubber Band Guitar Thingy (DIY musical instrument)

Well... I don't know if this type of thing has a name but it sure was fun to build. I'm sure I'm not the first person to come up with this idea but it was certainly fun to figure it out. It's an electric rubber band instrument.

That’s kool, I did something similar with an empty candy box & a pencil when I was young, but never thought about amplifying it, I bet everybody has one of those cut off piles laying around, I know I do :)
