Re: question on bowing

looper friends--
sorry i was being facitious about the "dreaded" synth.  my acoustic guitar
is midified with the axon100-sb and rmc pickups and i love it.  i suppose
it's part of my own wierdness that i enjoy watching people look around
quizzically when i play a sitar/tambura sound with acoustic guitar or
create my own standing ovation with an applause patch.  sure, i could do it
on a keyboard, but i like the disconnect when things aren't as expected and
also the expressiveness of guitar.  somehow in breaking expectations people
tend to listen more since they don't already know what's happening.

you guys keep keeping me honest
