After a long day of shoveling in the Black Hills of North Dakota, Isaac Frankle, aka Shovelman, awoke to discover that his shovel had been turned into a guitar by some unknown force.
Since then, hes been playing the ol shovel for the people, and asks no questions about how his bizarre instrument came to be, partly out of fear and partly out of amazement.
He says, Im just a vessel that works for something greater and dirtier than I am.
Though he thinks his shovel transformation has to do with the strange air out there, he stays inside while playing it.
He worries that if he leaves anything outside for too long, it too will be turned into a stringed axe.
Shovelman admits its tough playing his mystic instrument since he still uses it to fill holes and clear snow, which makes it go out of tune a lot.
