Hi guys i'm new to these forums.

How do you get the kind of sounds heard in Coldplay's "Dont Panic" out of a guitar?

I'm referring to the sound that comes in at the 25 second mark.

Is it all to do with the FX box or is it one of those clear finger things? ...and if so what are they called?

Thanks guys.

You might be thinking of a slide, a tube of glass or brass or some **** that you move across the strings over the frets

thats either a flanger or a phaser, i cant really tell. its an effect for the guitar.

It's just a really clear tone with some stereo delay.

it sounds like the strings during the second lick, that the tone is lowered

nah, im not referring to the different stages. yeah they could have possibly used one of those but...

I'm referring to the completely different sound coming from that guitar as opposed to regular sound. I think it would be a "slide" as mentioned.

I just remembered e-bows. Would an e-bow have been used at all?

the guy from cold play uses a lot of delays and stuff. It sounds pretty clean to me though.
