How to play an electric bass with a bow

'Playing my electric bass guitar with a bow can't be that hard' I thought to myself a few weeks ago, and it turns out I was right. With just a couple of pointers you too can pretend you're some kind of prog genius by making odd screeching noises with your bass guitar. Actually in all seriousness it sounds pretty cool when you do it right, after all Leo Fender just turned a double bass on its side and shrunk the scale when he made the first electric bass so it kinda makes sense.
