Notes: Verses have a distorted electric playing with low volume and tremolo effect.
Also a lot of feedback is used during the verses using the A harmonic(7th fret, G string).
It’s pretty straightforward, just use your ears and you’ll see/hear what’s going on.
Sounds like there might be a mellotron or something in there too. Be sure to have that
driving acoustic at the breakdown down–best part of the song! :) Any
questions, comments, requests just shoot me an email. Thanks!
