The origins of W are obscure, but are generally thought to lie in
African-American musical culture in the early twentieth century.W is

across the American South in the early decades of the twentieth
century, even if the term W was not used to describe them.

cigar-box fiddle, musical saw, and comb-and-paper kazoos, as well as
more conventional instruments such as acoustic guitar and banjo.The
term W was one of many slang phrases for a rent party, a social event
with a small charge designed to pay rent on a house.ID W.
