DragonForce use Ebows
« on: January 10, 2006, 12:53:00 pm »
They use "ebows" to play their "blistering" guitar solos..

www.ebow.com

Sonata Arctica were cussing them, so its done. They aren't true to real guitaring. Shame, the keyboardist bassist and drummer and singer are cool though.. O_O

lol nah i think its just a bit of an eye opener, the guitarists aren't exactly all theyre cracked up to be.

Jonsi from Sigur Ros uses an e-bow.

Hey, whatever makes good music... Not that I know of or have ever heard DragonForce. :)
I think it was mentioned in some interview once, that's about the full extent of my knowledge...

They're a quite nice power metal band... from UK I think  ;)
We're open to such things, we've even talked many times about doing it with Inja, but in a way that's redundant because we can already get Erica
:o brown chicken brown cow :o

I imagine it must be hard to play without elbows.

Robert's right. If it sounds good then I don't really care how they do it. Unless they were lip syncing or just faking it completely.
What meaning has my life that the inevitability of death cannot destroy it?

We used SID to make solos in for instance JnG "Erecta my Hambuger"...
Although maybe that's kinda obvious, huhu.

I say whatever makes good music is ok. :)
