Re: Frisell's Looping techniques and composite necks...
Thought the neck is composite, it may be able to be bent slightly. I
found that the neck on my stienberger will bend slightly though, not enough
to be of much use musically in my opinion... A very effective way of
eminating a steel guitar type bend is to:
bar strings 1 and 2 with the second finger (middle finger) of the left hand
place the first finger at the third string one fret lower and bend it up.
what comes out is a wonderful approximation of a steel guitar sound.
This can be enhanced with a volume swell and or delay or reverb... use
