    I'm inexperienced in identifying sounds... but about 24 seconds in, there is a guitar that appears to be sliding, and producing sounds with no noticeable strumming, like a guitar swells but sounds like its a constant sound?

    (sorry not the best description!!)

    There is another acoustic, and what i think sounds like a Strymon BSR in the back?

    any ideas how to produce this specific guitars effect?

    Could be a slide and an Ebow.

    Ebow with lots of delay and reverb in high mix. Slide optional.

    Just played this song at church today. Just did lots of swells most of the time with a touch of drive into a very long modulated delay and finally through my RV5's mod mode. Played a Les Paul (neck position) into an AC15HW1X. Sounded very convincing. But gotta be spot on with your timing. The long delay is my take on the consistent pad like sound.
