Can anybody identify this sound?

  1. I'm new here and I've been thinking about recording for fun when I have free time. I want to fill some songs out with the same sounds the Keith Urban has in the beggining of: "Somebody Like You" or "Raining on Sunday." Not sure if anybody has heard them, but I can't indentify the sound that both of the songs beggin with. Thanks, great website btw.

    If it helps at all, I know that Dan Huff is his producer.

    Welcome to RO.

    I don't think they're the same sound.

    "Raining.." sounds like a clean-ish Hammond organ to me.
    "Somebody.." sounds like a sustaining electric guitar to me (probably using an ebow).

    We'll see what the others have to say....
  3. Yeah I was searching it, it does appear to be an EBow he uses. Thanks for the info, I found them both pretty interesting to hear so I had to ask.
