    Don't know if this has been brought up and seriously discussed before, but I was listening to DD remastered again this past week and remembered there is a kind of constant "shh shh shh shh" sound in the background on Cathedral that starts when Eddie begins playing and stops as soon as he finishes.

    Does anyone know if this is supposed to be part of the instrumental, or if this is just an artifact of the remastering that they couldn't clean out - it kind of reminds me of the sound a tape recorder makes real softly while it runs.

    Excactamondo compadre ... Volume swells to be technical. It's a badass effect I still have probs with that technique still do this day. I guess your amp has to be over 5 to get or feel any affect from the swells!

    Ah, I see...

    That's actually neat how it "manifests" as a wooshing sound during the song.

    It takes a heck of a lot of dexterity to do it right...I am not too good at it, but I try it every so often

    i noticed it too on the remastered version. i knew he did the volume swelling seeing as how i am a fellow guitarist trying to copy him, but you couldnt hear it at all on the other one. hes only using a delay effect and chorus on it. the only big thing is the volume knob.
