Get the picture you would watch this not in a Video and you would experience this beeing in the same room ! I personally would run around for the next 24 hours and would say in a loop again and again Wow - Wow - Wow ............................ Natalia 'Saw Lady' Paruz (musical saw) and Eyal Bat (piano) playing Chopin Nocturne in C sharp Minor

If you have never try a Musical Saw ..............do it ..............it will be an interesting experience 101 % ! And it is not an expensive instrument ! A Musical Saw without teeth and a Bow here in Germany in a music shop something around 250 - 300 Euros !

When I was a small boy (many many years ago!) my Grandfather used to entertain me with a real woodcutting saw and violin bow. He would also play a percussive version by tapping it with a small hammer. Happy days. :))

I have just tried it ... I have an old rusty Sandvik saw ... fixed it up with an old toliet flush handle and it works great .... I dont have a bow though ... but it does work by tapping on it

When my Grandad used to do it he gripped the saw handle tightly between his knees so as to be able to flex the blade with the left hand. Once notes are achieved you can get a tremolo effect by vibrating one foot up and down. Maybe for a bow you could try a (metal cutting) hacksaw with some sort of string stretched where the blade should go. Rub it with a candle to simulate the rosin effect. Would have to be stretched pretty tight.
