Call me a noob or what have you, but this has intrigued me for the longest time, and I think I'm ready to give it a shot.

There is this effect I guess, or technique I suppose, sounds sort of like the notes are being played backwards, strung out sort of.

In some of Frusciante and The Beatles (so far as I know).

At 00:25, the sound I'm speaking of starts. (falling by frusciante)

and here sort of halfway through the song? Part of the solo too I guess. (i'm only sleeping by the beatles)

So my question is, what is this called and how exactly is it done? I'm pretty positive that it's just reversed, but I'd like to be sure. I'd like to experiment with it.

Sounds like the note is being played and the volume starts low and slowly gets louder.

from what TSelman describes it's just volume swelling.

U play a note with the volume down and turn it up gradually after u played the note. U can do it using the volume knob on ur guitar or a volume pedal.

EDIT: Frusciante's using a delay pedal set on reverse.

Well, the Beatles literally recorded it backwards. Played it normally, inversed the tape, learned the inverse guitar bit, then recorded it again. There ya go, the original guitar bit with a unique sound. Can't speak for the other guy, though.

It's almost solely a studio effect, though some delay pedals have an inverse delay that does pretty much the same thing.

Yup. Reverse Delay. If you lookin to do that cheaply, theres a Digitech Delay pedal that has multiple functions, including reverse delay. Cant remember the model name....but its a silver pedal.

Also....ill mention.....~Volume Swells~....for the hell of it, because some people mistake volume swells for reverse delay.

Well, I don't know much, but I can achieve a somewhat similar effect using the Slow Gear effect on my pedal...
Doesn't sound that good (since it's not meant for this), but may be useful if you want to experiment a bit...

Will this give you the same effect as the interlude in Metallica's "My Friend of Misery" ?
