This Indian string instrument has only one string but a very wide range of tones can be played.

How do you play the gobijeu? First, select the pitch using the tuning wooden pin at the top. Strum on the string and at the same time turn this pin so that your instrument emits the tone you want as a result. Then you can start to have fun. While strumming the string, gently squeeze the wooden neck, which is made of elastic wood, this changes the pitch of the note. For an idea, you can take a look at this short video on Youtube
