Playing "Bow on Bow"
I just found a new way to do damage to your violin bows. Proceed with caution.

Never heard of this before and I see no Youtube videos that show it.

I just completed George Lang's autobiography called "Nobody Knows the Truffles I've Seen."  On page 110, he reports that he competed on Arthur Godfrey's "Talent Scouts" show.  I quote the book here:  "As a parlow trick, I had developed a novel technique of playing two violin bows by using one as a violin and the other as a bow.  I became the Paganini of the metier.  With the help of a microphone, the sound was quite loud, like a chorus of bees groaning the "Anniversary Waltz" a capella, which was exactly what I was playing."

He lost.

Has anyone else heard of this or, better yet, can anyone here do this?
