Thanks! I'm glad you liked it! Softer music like that doesn't cut it for some folk but it's always felt right to me.
Excellent ear, mate! You're exactly right. Reversed guitar and 2x Vocals. The key to getting the vocals to sound that way was to actually sing the song twice and layer the vocals over one another at different frequencies to give a breathy chorus sound.
The tracks are as follows: Main Guitar --> Lead/Bridge Guitar --> Vocals --> Reversed Guitar --> Cymbal Hat --> Bass Guitar
Bass guitar was my friend's Fender P-Bass (Getty Lee edition), my guitar is a custom Strat, and the lead guitar was an ancient Epiphone neck/Harmony body spliced guitar I bought from my luthier.
Hey, thanks! Yes, I haven't changed my hair since I was in 6th grade actually lol hold on I'll find an up to date picture.
EDIT: This is me now
