Pawnshop Blues - Cigar Box Guitar & Blues Harp

First time playing on a harp rack. Made it DIY wireless by attaching a slotted, plastic hand sanitizer bottle, containing a Radio Shack lavalier and a bluetooth transmitter.

Correction: Harp was a Lee Oscar “G” played cross-harp in “D”   I confused it with a planned project.

Thanks for the comments.  I wasn't sure anyone would stay 'til the end & hear Siri scold me. Here are answers to your Qs:  Harp was Lee Oscar "C" played cross-harp in "G" (like Uncle John said). CBG made long ago by "Fuzzy" Whitener. Rack is Lee Oscar LO10HH ($23.99 Amazon),Other brands have thicker crossbar and block your lip. To AMPLIFY it, I used a plastic bottle but you can  split a toilet paper roll LENGTHWISE and resultant C-SHAPE will clamp nicely & tape over backside of harp & rack.  Insert a Radio Shack 33-3013 Lavalier ($12.00 on Ebay) inside the toilet roll tube. (Uniquely handles the volume... no issue.) You can add a 1/8' to 1/4" male plug converter at end of its 1/8" cord and plug directly into your amp!!!  Or, for wireless, I used a couple of connectors on the 1/8' male cord end to convert to 1/4' female and accept the male 1/4' end of my Ammoon wireless "dongle" ($59.99 for set of two) and plugged other dongle into guitar amp.  Good fun. Hope that makes sense.  (Didn't notice it lost stereo. Likely operator error as I mic'd the amp back thru a mixer to camera.)

What kind of harp is that? You played it well, and you and that thing are tome-monsters.
