This is the way I used to hear the old-timers play Bonaparte's Retreat around the fiddlers' conventions in the 1960s. One old guy used to undo the frog on his fiddle and lay the bowhair on top of the strings and have the actual bow underneath his fiddle to draw the hair across the strings, producing a "droning" sound.
