Be gentle :)

I am working on Coming Back to Life by Pink Floyd. I recorded first 40 seconds so far. I am working on this every night. When done with the intro, I will record again and post. This will be a progression thread for me on this song.

Little over a year ago I picked up a guitar for the first time and signed up for GT. This site IS the reason I am still playing and loving it.

I removed the link, was reading in another forum about non-originals. oops.

sounds pretty good to me. I think the backing track makes it sound a lot better, but for a year that's pretty good.

I have to agree i have learned the intro to that song,i had to i loved it that much..that was three years ago.but i never finished the whole solo,jumped into the chords instead.brave...the very beginin of that solo is alittle tricky
It may not sound tricky but it is,as i remember it.

What makes Gilmour tricky is not the notes but the nuances in his bends and vibrato. I read something somewhere or maybe saw a lesson where they described his playing as "the notes are always moving". Years ago when I learned the comfortably numb solos, I remember thinking "this would be a lot easier without all of these bends...eeek!". But the bends is what it's all about. It's been over 10 years and I still can't capture the true nature of those solos...but I keep trying. I think few players really can. It's deceptive because on the surface his solos are simple...yet they aren't.

That's amazing that you've been playing for little of a year and you've come this far. That's awesome!!

Yeah. I first looked at the notes and thought "Not to bad"...wow. Wrong! I picked this song for a couple reasons.

1. It is a great song
2. Because it is so complex it will be a good one to judge improvement on for a long time.
3. It is a great song!

The pure feeling and emotion he puts in his music is so amazing and inspiring.

If there is no challenge
There is no change!
Keep up with that tune.i wish i would of kept on learnin it.
And gilmore is one of my favorit players.
Its not all about how fast you can play a lick,rather then how you play that lick or a scale run ect.
See when you learn a song,you learn the technics that come with it.
Here is one way to practice ur half/whole step bending..
Say ur on the 7th fret of the g string,plug the 9th fret on same string and bend to you hear that picth on the 9th fret.thats a whole step bend.and do the same on the 8th fret bend to that note.and just keep doing that.then you can take it over too the b string and do the same thing.allot of the pros bend up too 5 fret picth,useing there trem bar of course.good luck....
