Hey, can anyone tell me how to achieve that very strange reverse sound during the solo (1:55) of this song:


It sounds like hes playing it normally, but the notes are very subtlety sounding backwards as he plays them, not like when you normally play something backwards.

Sorry for how confusing that sounds

Don't dig up the past, TS. You're not gonna like what you find.
That sounds to me like heavily compressed fuzz, which can sometimes produce a 'blooming' effect as the compressor kicks in and increases the volume/sustain of the note. No fancy studio tricks there!
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite
Nothing crazy...it doesn't actually seem to be following the dynamics closely, seems more like a slow tremolo.

Volume pedal is an easy way to get this kind of effect, or you can use your guitar's volume knob (often called 'violining' - Jeff Beck and Joe Bonamassa are famous players who use it pretty extensively).
