There's a digital delay throughout the entire song with a bouncing echo. 
Solo has a harmonizer set to a perfect 5th during the first 8 measures, 
which changes the sound of the pitch of the natural harmonics played.

Gtr I (E A D G B E) - 'Main Guitar'
Gtr II (E A D G B E) - 'Guitar Solo'
Gtr III (E A D G B E) - 'Solo (Harmonizer set for 5ths)'
