Mid-seventies "That Nashville Music" featuring Johnny Paycheck and Melba Montgomery has a live band with Buddy on steel. Keep an eye out for the inevitable rerun in the next few days. Buddy looking great and playing some terrific stuff...

Classic Buddy, including using an E-Bow and playing the Blade. His steel is out front enough to hear what he is up to.

I saw him on playing with Darrell McCall tonight. I thought it was cool to see him playing, using an e-bow. When I first heard it, I thought it was a recorder or a piccolo. Buddy was a top right steel man, and is truly missed in the steel guitar world.

What is an E-bow? Is there a video of Buddy using it?

If it is what I think it is, it is the device that he picks up from his music stand at around the 2:10 mark of his "Once Upon a Time in the West" video on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXdPDrCXMdg

Thank you, Randy
I once saw a video of him using that device but had no idea what it was called. Thank you again for your help.

Barry,
I was actually going to start a thread asking who invented the E-Bow, what it was made of, and how did it work. Thank you for the link. It answered my questions.

Off-topic a bit, but it's weird that I first remember seeing an E-Bow in a catalog as a guitar accessory... Since then I have seen many steel players use one... But, the only guitarist that I ever recall seeing use one was the late Mick Ronson at the Freddie Mercury tribute concert.

Here's guitarist Phil Keaggy demonstrating an E-Bow. Quite an interesting "orchestral" sound.

I have used an eBow quite often on recordings, both with steel and electric guitar. It is one cool tool!

I use it live on steel with Darrell McCall, trying to cop Buddy's part on the recording of "Down The Road Of Daddy's Dreams":

I have dropped mine one too many times so I need to get a new one. The last mishap was so bad that I can't put Humpty Dumpty back together again Sad

This is why you shouldn't "fiddle" with it, Tommy Wink
