    He recorded it on a nylon-string Ovation guitar.

    I dont remember if its Ovation or not, I'll take his word for it, but it was on a flemenco and yes with nylon strings.

    What tuning?? Damn. That means I've probably been trying to do it in standard and there is an easier way.....shit. I thought it was standard.

    The hmmm sound. Not sure thats ever been determined has it? I heard it was just a sound of slight exasperation due to having to do more than one take of it. Kind of a mumbled "oh all right" annoyed kind of sound.

    DIF will have to clean up unless Glenn or one of the 100% on the quiz guru's gets to it first. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I knew the guitar he used, but that's about it.

    Like Seenbad, I thought the noise at the beginning was Eddie sort of mumbling something.

    The tuning? Beats the hell out of me. I can play the harmonic intro part on the guitar in standard tuning. I couldn't play the rest in any tuning. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    He just tuned it down a tone to make it easier to tap or something. I think it was a tone, might have been two. Hmmmmm. (As eddie would say)

    Yes:It's a Nylon-strung Ovation. And as far as the mumbling in the beginning, it's Ed saying "Alright, here we go......." [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    That Hmm sound? Lol, you all are wrong! [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

    Ed did that whole take in one breath. Thats him taking in a breath because the mics were right up on his guitar so he couldn't breath just cause it would pick up on the mics.

    It's a tough call. I always thought that the sound was someone saying something, and they just left it in there and kind of slowed the tape down. Like Ted says "Go" and they decided to slow that part of the tape down in the mixing to make it kind of drag out etc. Hell I have no idea, but it does make for a cool beginning to Spanish Fly
