Pretty much the same with more sustain. It probably wouldn't sound quite as distinctive as a regular guitar. But, it could be pretty cool. I'll have to play with that.
Well, from what I was thinking, you might be able to use its infinate sustain, in addition to its volume dynamics (further and closer to the string)

Im just thinking the sliding ability of the pipe you use for pitch, plus the bow like quality of how the notes are played.. that could be really wicked =)
almost thereminish perhaps?
