The “eBow” or “energy bow” is one of the most unique guitar effects you can find. It’s unique because it’s handheld, and because you don’t touch the strings with it. It’s like a big magnet you sweep over the strings slowly to mimic the effect of a violin “bow” playing your electric guitar! When used properly, you can get sweeping arpeggios, bowed chords, and even sounds like crashes and explosions for very dramatic effects. It’s really hard to describe how beautiful the sounds can be with the electronic box or “ebow” – so here’s some YouTube videos to give you a better picture of some of (nearly unlimited) possibilities:

Oh – did I mention that it works on acoustic guitars too?

Oh – and it ever works on bass guitars!

You can actually buy the ebow for under $100 on Amazon.
