It's a unique 10 string (sometimes more) instrument - check out any live
shots of Tony Levin (best known(??) proponent of the stick) with King
Crimson or peter Gabriel, etc etc..

You play with a tapping-oriented technique- and the range of the instrument
overlapps guitar and bass and beyond. great invention - search the web - 
sure emmett chapman has a site...

web info on ground control midid pedals, midi-mitigator, or several by
digitech are good places to check on.....
