I also mentioned in my last post how it could be possible for a person to make a guitar like object with easily perishable items like a wooden box and animal hair. Take the example of a banjo, as Steve Martin explains:
Although any guitar or banjo like object of the deep past would have varied in form and uses from region to region and culture and culture (if indeed any such instrument existed at all) the music itself would vary in style and sound. However, it is possible to imagine that maybe in the deep past little banjo and/or flute groups could have existed. Anyways, the following example is of a group using a string based musical instrument:
What if this hypothetical musical group of the past had singers for ritualistic or just plain social reasons?
