Most of us have heard PC, Slam Stewart, OP, John Clayton, etc. solo with the stick 'o pain to some extent or another. I was curious as to how many of those on TB actually bust out their bows when their solo choruses come up. I made my first attempt along to ATTYA (TB'er Phil Smith's site has playalongs in any key for many tunes.) Keep in mind I'm using fairly fresh strings with a french bow (I play German) and it was my first attempt. My best estimation of it was... ...I guess..."catbutt." Yep. It sounded that bad. I know it'll get better with practice (and a German bow!) but for the moment, it's one of the worst sounds I've ever successfully cranked out of a DB yet. So...anyone here actually *succeed* at this?
