The short bow. To sing and play like a guitar player.

Invented by Ethan Erwin at the age of 17 from Magnet Cove, Arkansas. Frees a violin player up to sing and play like a guitar player. Currently in product development for distribution through Glasser bows .
I think it's great for some kind of music. Imagine this song with it:

Wow, now THAT is a great idea, I wish I thought of it. I am not kidding. That young man, Ethan Erwin, is an inventor! Even though I'm strictly a classical player, this is going to be the coolest thing to have in my violin case just to fool around with. Kids are going to LOVE this too, and I bet it finds its way into Suzuki classes, Music Mind Games, summer camps, fiddle workshops, you name it.
My only question is, how do you tighten it? Eventually the hair is going to stretch and then it will be floppy. I wonder if, instead of two points, it would be better to have some kind of simplified frog on one end.
