8/8v: Harmonic doubling with lower octave (Whammy pedal)
8/8^: Harmonic doubling with higher octave (Whammy pedal)
  8~: Unspecific octave shifting (Whammy pedal)         

Tuned slightly sharp.


Two guitars play in (semi-)unison, which I have simplified into one guitar part.
Both guitar signals are digitally combined with their lower octave using a Whammy pedal.
