I created an account just because you mentioned Radiohead's "Nude"

In Rainbows is the only album I've ever listened to where I never want to skip a single song (except mayyyyybe Faust Arp).

I actually always wondered how that sound was created in the chorus. I didn't know it was compression, I always thought it was a sample of sorts, and that the guitar was just playing single notes
Yeah, I'm also in love with this album

As for the guitar sound, I honestly don't have any clue how Nigel Godrich made it so you might be right about the sample thing

But I know for sure that I can get a pretty close result with compression
Nearly can't wait for next week
