this is vid is very awesome, he is using a technique that was also used by Joe Venuti, it's using the hairs of the bow to play 4 strings at once...he's demonstrating a bluegrass tune which fits in with the technique very much...i think it can be also played with some baroque pieces that uses 4 strings at once..

cheers! - ⁰ℨ

He surprised me and actually sounded pretty good. :)
Thanks for the post.

A friend of mine who I used to take lessons with, Tommy Cordell did this one day at the weekly bluegrass jam I attend in Titusville. He actually played a fast bluegrass tune and sounded pretty cool. Freaky to see at the start and I thought he had lost all his marbles! It was a show stopper!

If you'd like this you'll probably actually like cellist Michael Bach and his "Bach" bow. He had a bow designed for him that can change tension in the midst of playing using a specific hand technique in order to play in a polyphonic matter. If he raises his thumb on the frog slightly the hair tension increases so he can perform agile passages.
