Re: question on bowing

i use an ebow on hammered dulcimer with loops.  it's quite an eerie effect.
i've used it on a few album recordings--Beth Nielsen-Chapman's Deeper Still
(not out yet) and a couple from my band, Trapezoid, "Remembered Ways" and
"Long Time Down this Road."  since these are recordings and not live i
don't loop them.  i use the ebow quite a bit in loops in live shows.  i
also use the ebow on acoustic midi guitar which can be pretty wild
depending on the midi patch.  regualr bow would be problematic on both
instruments.  ebow works by creating a magnetic field that keeps the string
