Florida one man powerhouse, Ben Prestage has a completely unique style, infusing chicken picking with hyperspeed slide guitar.
In this video, he performs with his trusty double-neck Lowebow, a cigar box guitar that features one bass string and three guitar strings, each fed to separate amplifiers. The instrument was invented and built by John Lowe of Xanadu Music & Books, Memphis TN.
The Lowebow is one of the coolest instrument ever, And I think Ben knows it.
uh huh uh uh -- like it like that
Starting this evening, I'm going back to drinking, and smoking, and play that devil music.
Tremendous, what fun!!
Cool! I'm only seeing one bass string and one higher string. Am I missin' something? Man the co-ordination needed to do all that!
Thanks Dave. I'll watch it on youtube so I can go full screen.
Fantastic - That's the sort of thing you have to see to believe - Powerhouse is right!
Awesome to be able to play all that and sing at the same time. Amazing talent.
