The Om Guitar!

Spotted this fabulous video by Gareth Whittock on a facebook looping group – it’s just wonderful! Expressive and amazingly, doesn’t sound at all like an e-bow to my ears! I’ve tried it on various guitars without luck – maybe my ebow isn’t charged up enough to vibrate the string whilst touching it, however gently. I may need to scour ebay for a lappy now

An eerie sounding scale, Bill Walker (check his superb looping work on youtube says it’s arabian minor. R, b2, maj3 ,P4, P5, b6, maj7. This *will* work its way into my set at some stage – truly ispirational.
