You can with a guitar synthesizer, but they are kinda pricey and require a special pick-up you have to mount on your guitar. A cheaper solution would be a reverse delay sound, or a volume pedal that can approximate string swells.

You could also get an ebow that can simulate string sounds on a guitar.

You actually have a few options available.

Here's a demo of what an ebow can do for your guitar.

ebow would be tough to do faster picking songs though. Like sweet child of mine because you have to move the thing all over the place BUT it is an option. Goin to guitar center today to check it out. thanx for the info

And I just want to say that no synthesizer or ebow can accurately imitate the sweet sound of the strings and an authentic vibrato. I had to say that to defend my instrument--I actually play the violin, but not nearly as well as the fellow in the video!
