Music is the Language of the Soul

   by Reb Gutman Locks   

   Some 30 years ago, I designed and handcrafted this musical instrument. It seems to me to be an instrument that King Dovid would like to play. I tuned it to sound like the 7 waterfalls I had heard in Hawaii. They fall one into the next making a very forceful, yet gentle sound. Many years later I read in a book on the history of musical instruments that the exact tuning I thought I had invented was found on a ten-stringed musical instrument that was shipped from China to Japan well over 1,000 years ago. Instead of the usual sound holes that are found on most string instruments today, I carved "Sing to Hashem." The music is very peaceful. Play it softly.
