Description

The jaw harp consists of a small metal frame shaped, in outline, like a bottle. A small metal tongue runs through the center, projecting out of the neck end. The player holds the neck against their lips with their teeth parted enough so that the tongue of the instrument may vibrate without touching their teeth. The player twangs the metal tongue with their finger by pushing the protruding edge away from the face. By changing the shape of their mouth, and thus changing the air flow through the air cavity it makes, the player is able to produce many different notes.
