BOWED (HOMEMADE) LAP STEEL: Got this homemade "lap steel" for about $60, took all the strings off, and slapped a bunch of "D" strings on it (electric bass and standard electric geet), in different octaves. Then bowed the heck out of them, in this vid!

This "tension builder" improvisation starts cool, but sorta loses the plot in the middle (no further comment)!

No effects were added after the fact; this is all running through my Fractal Audio Axe-FX II. What sounds like "clipping" is actually very dry delay repeats popping out, but getting (mostly) buried by the power of the low string being bowed. If this kind of thing was a "real" recording, I'd take the "re-amp" track and use it to process the "slide" bits so they "pop" more (give them more independent atmosphere). Enjoy!
