A Single Cloud – ambient fretless guitar

a_single_cloud


A Single Cloud is an ambient fretless guitar piece in two tracks – the first track laid down was the ebow driven (mostly) drone. Then I improvised an ebow (mostly) melody over that with the intent of sticking to just intervals over the drone. The title and icon come from my feeling of solitude while performing the piece. The fretless guitar was made by defretting a Fender Squier stratocastor copy. You can see me playing the guitar in this video.

    I have a pedal steel Ebow that activates 2 strings at once, making things like this possible in a single pass.

    Nice work, Chris!

    Hi bOb – after some thought it occurred to me that your double ebow would not work to create this piece unless it had a width adjustment. I play a low string drone and a melody spanning several high strings.
