For some reason, this reminded me of "Don't Look Back" (title track) by Boston. In the bridge, the guitarist is playing the song's main riffs at a slower tempo with a bit less distortion. During little pauses between chord changes, he makes a scratching sound. (I presume he's striking the strings but holding them down somehow to prevent them ringing.) It's a very cool effect. Occurs a few times between about 2:37 to 2:52:
