  • How is this guitar sound achieved? :D

    As a Pixies fan, I love a lot of how Joey Santiago plays, and hearing this song yesterday by The Vaccines (not a fan, but, y'know) made me as a newbie guitarist want to know how that's done, as it reminded me of wanting to try this. Ok, sustained thing at 0:27 -


    Best way I can describe it is it's sort of slightly feedbacking/slightly pitch bent. But I'm not a guitarist, so some thorough dumbed down answers would be much appreciated!

    Sounds like just a note (two notes at the same time to be exact) being bend. Some vibrato as it's ringing out. Nothing special in terms of effects or skills, just a loud dirty amp...

      Kind of sounds like a tele.

        Done with the second and third string, two frets apart bending the third string up to the same note as the second string.
