Can you guys please tell me the instruments being used especially during the introduction to this song besides drumset? Is there a djembe and shakers too? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_io6j1EytGA&feature=related
I see that no has taken a shot at this.
I *think* this is actually a muted palm style on he guitar. As a guitar player I've done a few ties. Then it's got lots of delay/echo/reverb on it to give it that more hollow.
I could wrong, but I'm backed up by that live version at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMrnTxNKDds, you can really see the guitarist do this @ 0.11s and above. The camera focuses right on him. Also live, with less post processing it sounds more like muted guitar.
That's my best (current) guess.
