I got it! I heard that he used a metal bar with a textured surface to get the slidey, sustainy sound at the beginning of Echoes. I have a trashed mini Maglight flashlight and I took the other parts off of the shaft. Using the shaft as a bow/slide with a medium length delay absolutely nails that sound. I can only do it on the e strings. I guess you'd need a guitar with a smaller fretboard radius to do it on the other strings without hitting adjacent strings. Awesome. I'm having lots of fun today.

I don't know this song, but I had stumbled upon this a week ago...

Cool pedal. I had heard that he got the weird noise in the middle section by running his guitar signal through a wah pedal plugging into the output jack and running the input jack to his amp and manipulating the controls on his guitar. Never had the stones to try it as I don't want to blow up any of my gear if this was just hearsay.

You're unlikely to blow up your gear, but just make sure the volume isn't too loud on your amp when you try it. Here's a video on how to do the seagull effect:
