While playing around with an E-bow and a cheap lap steel guitar, I discovered I could make an unusual sound - more like a wind instrument than a stringed instrument and quite ethereal to my ears. I developed my playing technique and modified the lap steel into what you see in the video. The instrument, (and my technique) are in a process of continuous development. Since I play world-influenced, drone music I dubbed it the "Om Guitar". I have played it as far away as Japan and the USA and it generally raises a few eyebrows. Thanks to my gifted partner, Emma it now has a suitably psychedelic paint-job too..
