Methods of Control - Spiccato

Slapping the EBow onto the SupportStrings has a percussive, spiccato effect and comes in handy for starting open strings instantly. Try bouncing the EBow against the SupportStrings over the HotSpot as you finger the notes with your left hand. It sounds like bouncing a bow on a violin. Tap the fretboard with each bounce for a more percussive spiccato. Muffle the SupportStrings with your left hand for an extra clean spiccato. (Muffling the SupportStrings whenever possible reduces noise caused by the EBow hitting the strings.)

You can glide, press, tilt, rock, and bounce the EBow in various combinations. Use your imagination!
