Other Grips - Basic Grip Over Treble Pickup

You can also use the basic grip to play over the front coil of a humbucker in the treble position. This gives you a reverse playing area (the switch end approaches the pickup) which opens the door to new tones and textures. Different harmonics are produced and can be much brighter and very pronounced. As you move closer to the bridge, the strings become harder to drive. This gives the EBow a nice envelope (slower attack time).
