Grand Canyon (Magnetic Fields Cover)

December 7, 2010 2:15 AM

I received a violin bow this weekend it's been really exciting and fun using it to play the electric guitar, so I thought I'd post a quick and dirty new cover of the Magnetic Fields song "Grand Canyon". Here's a video of me playing the song with the bow. Also, those loud bangs you hear that sound like regular worker crew replacing the roof? Wrong, they are actually hella underground, lo-fi authenticity booster superheros.

Here's my old one. As always, thanks so much for listening. Any bow-guitar tips are super appreciated!

Also HUGE thanks to MonsieurBon for lending me his electric guitar and amp!

Man, I really love what you're doing with the bow and your voice has such an awesome timbre, I'd love to hear more like this.

Gosh, this is just too good. Your voice is perfect, and the bowing stuff is freakin' awesome. More, please!

As previously stated, this rules.
