The New Year
Death Cab for Cutie

This is taken from other tabs online.  I fixed them up a bit and tabbed it out in a nice 
format for two guitars and a bass.  Don't be daunted by the size - it's really not all 
long and isn't very hard.  But it is very fun to play.  Enjoy!

So how is the part that is started on 1:20 of the song done? I've been trying to get it down but idk if I'm missing some reverb on my guitar or something.

How is the part played and are there any affects?
