I can”t figure out the watermelon.

  

I think it's like blowing across the top of an open bottle. It probably has narrow holes cut to different depths. Also, it's probably a wax gourd rather than a watermelon. Note that the entire cut surface is light green. They grow to about the same size, and the wax gourd would be more suitable for cutting into that way.

The one I'm surprised by is the trombone-like sound coming out of the squash at the beginning.

Thanks for the exp,anation, Andrew. That whole thing fascinates me, as does the Kong Island Vegetable Orchestra.

This thread has sure taken a turn, @GregW  Thank you, a much needed diversion.

They call me, “Mellow Cello”

Oh man, it really is cabin fever time - how about "Hurdy G(o)urdy Man" D'Oh... 

They just don't make 'em like that any more....  [ ROFL - aye, and I know what's coming in response to that.... ]

haha...yeehaw @Billyg .  I like the hurdy gurdy man.  the song...I dont know anyone that plays the hurdy so I can't point and say I like that hurdy gurdy man...he's a good dude. which would really be odd if the hurdy gurdy player was a female.  then it would be she is a really good lady...In fact on YouTube the only hurdy gurdy player ive watched is a woman.  and why did he call him the hurdy  gurdy man?  like hey its the ice cream man or the candy man.  nobody says..hey it's the violin man or oh look here comes the Basson man...where was I going with this...I'll get back with you.
