    Inspired by Ken Rosser's opining on the virtues of his eBow recently, I dug mine out, hit up the Energizer Bunny for some fresh juice, and attempted to utilize it a bit this weekend.

    Methinks I should have at least ATTEMPTED to re-remember how the damned thing works before subjecting an audience to it. You'll recognize when I start to use it by the huge CLUNK as I attempt to find the grooves and get it activated..............I meant to do that.

    Be that as it may, here's the mid-section of a looooong take on "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy", of all things.......not so's that you'd recognize it.

    My only defense is......there was a cute drunk girl REALLY digging it.......either that or she was tripping.

    Obviously, the moral of this story?

    Chicks dig eBow.

    (If I'd had The Gizmo, my virtue would surely have been in jeopardy)

    PS......don't blame Ken for this. He actually knows how to manipulate the wee whiny bugger........or does a great job pretending! :p

    Hey Jim - nice dude!!

    I see you've discovered the siren-call properties of the humble little ebow on members of the fairer sex, inebriated and not...

    ...I'm serious....and Jim here can back me up....

    Thanks, Ken......sorry for associating your name with that......lol.

    But you are SO right on about the female/eBow connection.

    Why do you think it only gets used in egghead, male-dominated prog, experimental, etc music??? If you use the eBow in a heavily lady-laden environment....well, it could get ugly..........

    Let's just say I value my clothing and essential bodily fluids too much to threaten them in such a cavalier manner.

    Jim, as long as you recognize this is a power to be used for good and not for evil...I say let the bodily fluids fall where they may....

    This was great fun to listen to Jim ...
    Really dug the beginning solo section and your use of the E-bow ...
    Actually thought it was rather psychedelic ...

    Yeah, I thought it was psychedelic as well. I like the raw-ness of the solo too. The early parts of the solo reminded me of John Fogerty's sustain stuff in "I Put A Spell On You" from the first CCR album.
