Sorry, Bart, but WHICH song? That album represents a pletoria of  
played instruments, used effects and different looping and production  
techniques. I would love to solve the mystery of this "flutter  
sound", if you could please just specify a little more....

Thanks, Warren. And Kudos to you that are able to tell that it's not  
a physical guitar played on that piece! ;-))  What you hear is the  
built-in synth of the Akai EWI played into a laptop running Native  
Instruments Guitar Rig 2 daisy-chained into Mobius looping software.  
It's a complete improvisation, so maybe I was led into phrasing  
"guitar-like" because I happened to get that guitar-like sound from  
the NI GR2?
