    Thanks so much for the pictures, Dave. Yikes, that's a close up of the Ebow! Must be a great camera! Thanks also for your very kind review.
  2. You're welcome.

    I really like how that Ebow pic turned out. I picked up one of those at NAMM last January. They're really fun! I tend to use mine in the normal mode. Michael, do you primarily use yours in that special overtones mode ( or whatever they call it )? That's what it sounded like to me.

    I should note that when I said that the audience was "dead silent", I meant, between the thunderous applause.

    I often switch between the two modes, sometimes in the middle of a note, and I also play a lot of harmonics in the normal mode by using the pinky of my Ebow hand to close the harmonic. Somehow Paolo's music seems to call for a lot of harmonic Ebow stuff, but oddly enough I played a few gigs with my friend John Gorka last weekend using a ton of Ebow and I didn't use the harmonic mode once!

    oooo an Ebow? what's that? i want one. i bet that's super wicked fun to play with.

    neat pics.
  6. Thanks. E-bows give you infinite sustain by generating a resonating magnetic field that keeps the string vibrating. By positioning the E-bow in different locations on the string you can cause different overtones to be enhanced. It's really incredible. The new E-bow has a special mode that forces higher harmonics to be enhanced. I prefer the standard mode though.

    bless you, they have a new customer =)

    i'll tell em "Dave sent me!"
  8. I'm a huge Gorka fan and I really enjoy his "Gypsy Life" DVD. It's particularly nice to watch your effortless ebow technique including how you switch between fingerstyle and ebow mid phrase.
