i'm mostly active on stack overflow, but as i like the overall platform/concept so much i figured i'd give this here a try!
basically, my question is in the title, and here's a link to the song:
i'm referring to the heavily distorted guitar that somehow still blends into the background (listening on bose quiet comfort headphones); it plays on the quarter notes. i'm wondering what techniques might have been used, both in regard to the guitar sound (i.e. pedals, amps, guitars) and to the overall recording/mixing/mastering process, and how you would go about replicating this sound in a modest home studio.
