Never ending notes or chords

Hello
is it possible to have a chord or note that never ends or stops?
sometimes I can hear notes that go on for a long time, like this one in this song
http://youtu.be/K5FZ-tkSs60?t=3m57s
And yes it is a Rock Band 3 video, but I how do I do it on a real guitar?

An eBow, or correctly set compression can give this effect

cheers, Jerry

Or killer vibrato, distortion, and standing in the right spot in the room!

Can't watch the video, but here are some things.

Typical guitar ways: eBow, compression, feedback, delay freeze (sort of the same as feedback), looping

Awesome ways for cool people only: spectral freeze, granular freeze, reverb tail freeze

Crank up your amp and leave your guitar in front of it - unlimited sustain.

What's happening in that song is most likely just feedback. You play a note and have enough volume and gain and the sound of the amp will keep the strings ringing.

TS is referring to the sustained guitar note in Bostons - More Than A Feeling song.

Hey, friend. Firstly, you need a great tube amp, probably a Marshall in Boston's case, and a guitar with humbucker pickups. Settings on the amp are rolled off lows, high mids, and trebles set around 7 and make sure the guitar is on its bridge pickup.

From what I understand, effect processing started taking place around this time. So, in terms of notes like this, studio magic probably has a lot to do with it. But to get close with pedals, you need a distortion, a reverb, a delay, and, the big one, a compressor. The compressor is what will allow for that extra sustain!

And when that note starts fading just throw the guitar in front of the amp for a bit of feedback.
