Acoustic Looping with a Violin Bow
March 17th, 2015 | Back to Blog Listing

I've recently been doing some experimenting with a violin bow after a friend of mine started teaching me some basics. Granted she is playing on an actual violin, but it translates to guitar fairly well.

The result was a harder sounding back beat with a nice wah-wah tick and a deep swell from the violin bow. I was basically just forming an E-chord and running the bow over the strings with heavy distortion to get the effect.
