Thread Name: Help: Jew's Harp question!
Subject: RE: Help: Jew's Harp question!
I've heard them called "Jew's Harp", "Mouth Harp", "Jaw Harp" and a few other names. It all comes down to being a twangy instrument played by plucking the tongue of the instrument while it's resting against the mouth. Twangy kinda sound, mostly known in the US for being 'rustic' and 'hillbilly'.
