Here's a bit of trivia nobody cares about.......my ex, ex, ex girlfriend actually did the robotic handshake graphics on the outside sticker attached to the original album plastic covering!! Also......during the recording of this album it was the very last time any of the members of Pink Floyd saw Syd Barrett.............and his overweight and bald weird appearance and demeanor freaked the rest of the band out to the point of tears.............Jim C.

Cool trivia on Pink Floyd guys! Stuff I didn't know.

And thanks Jamboss1 for the kudos on my "Wish You Were Here" song lesson/tutorial here on Guitar Tricks! I can't say for sure if there's more Pink Floyd song lessons in the pipeline at this point though.

One more bit of P.F. trivia, Dave...........it is reported that Syd had zero idea this tune (Wish You Were Here) was actually about him and his sad departure from the band he formulated........from bad psychotic episodes and basically Mad Cow disease (kidding about the Mad Cow of course......but it was all self or drug induced) only a few years earlier. Nobody recognized Syd for quite a spell and thought he was only part of the Abbey Road recording studio team!!! Jim C.

Jim,

Thanks for sharing more trivia! Yeah, I heard that "Wish You Were Here," a tender song about a close friend, is about Syd. It's sad what drugs can do to a person.

Right on Kevin and thanks! It is a great song and a big hit with all my students (of all ages). You picked it up pretty quickly in our online lesson too. Good job on your part sticking with it to nail the parts!
