Just started watching my Steven Wilson Grace for Drowning concert DVD I got for Xmas. I don't think I was famliar with Beggs' work before this but boy am I now. Watching him play that Chapman Stick is something within itself. That dude seems solid. By the way the DVD is amazing. The musicianship on that stage is sick and Wilson is a genius. Rock on! EDIT: Apparently the Chapman Stick he uses is modified. I thought it looked a little "bare bones" to be what I saw him playing on the DVD. Grabbed this off wiki: He has also significantly modified a Chapman Stick to a fully midi able instrument triggering midi from both bass and melody strings. He has named this the "Virtual Stick".
