Massive distortion and compression with lots of reverb and echo.  I don't particularly like this guitar sound.  Its too washy with the extreme effects, and hard to identify the note being played.  But, that's just my opinion.  My opinion has little value except that its mine.  Also, I'm a bit of an Old Fart.  I just celebrated the 40th anniversary of my 21st birthday.

Hi  IZ, don't get put off by our favorite self confessed 'old fart' [Hi Keith :D] - I quite like the song, but as Rockerbob says, that's just my opinion.  The main thing is to play guitar in whatever way pleases you, and to have fun while doing it.  Good luck.

The technique he is using is sometimes called 'violining'. The guitarist is swelling into the note with the volume knob rolled off at first. There is a few bit of delay and reverb on the guitar to help add depth and sustain to the note.

      Hi all
       
      I live in the UK and I'm thinking of taking a guitar exam. I've been playing basic electric rhythm guitar (although I have pro-level keyboard skills) for a long time and I want a structured motivation to improve my playing, as this is mainly a solo hobby. There appear to be three organisations providing exams: Trinity Guildhall, London College of Music and Rockschool. Does anyone have experience of these and could offer advice?
       
      Thanks
