Hey

In birds theres an instrument allways playing in my left side (since my earphones are a little trashed the instrumental is amplified and you ear things you never heard before.......remember when i said this?) and i thought it was the acoustic guitar. BUT it seems too high pitched thus me thinking its a mandolin.

You can ear it from 1:38 in this video

This is probably Chris playing the acoustic guitar in a pretty weird way something similar can be spotted in Hypnotised at around 3:10, but more in tune. I think that Chris explained these sounds in this interview back in the days at 8:00.

It's a pretty interesting acoustic guitar part. It sounds like what Jonny plays live for Charlie Brown. But mostly it just sounds like this funny little droning thing that oddly fits in the song well.

Actually, the song credits state that 'Birds' incorporates Moses Martin playing the guitar. My guess is that Moses plays that almost odd guitar part you hear on the left channel of the song. That would explain why it sounds like 'amateur playing' (no ofense to you, Moses :p )
