Is there a special way to hold the bow when 'bowing' your guitar? I tried doing it today with a really crappy bow, and nothing happened. Was it the bow?

Only the E strings will work, really.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

you have to make sure the bow has quite a bit of rosin on it, especially if you are using coated strings

I think the problem is you need absolutely ****loads of gain on for it to work. Probably wont work with a practice amp you'll need a big old stack.

You'll need some pretty high output pickups too.

You can get the same sound effect by hammering on the note with one hand while simultaniously turning the volume up on your guitar with the other.

from my experience that doesn't really sound quite the same, similar, but the violin bow sounds cooler if you do it right.

Exactly. I just got the sound remains the same (about time) and I was inspired by Page's awesomeness.

Edit: SONG remains the same. Jesus, it's too late...

It's easier though, and cheaper in bows too.
