What sort of Single White Female nonsense is this? Stop trying to become me!

Ebows are pretty kewl, but using them effectively (that is, to do more than just drone a continuous note as you slide up and down the string) is a pain in the dick. Moving onto other strings is a pain too, but I've seen videos of guys doing it smoothly and cleanly so there must be a technique to it. I just don't know where to go to learn it.

My dream is to do a cover of something like Adagio For Strings or Air on a G String, but it's fuckin' impossible to properly "bow" the notes consistently.

Dylan, I think you should get one, because it will definitely provide you with some awesome new soundage. And you'll probably master it in a few days, because you're a cunt.
