Guitar Tricks 165: David Gilmour Style Lead

This week's lesson is on a tasty lick in the style of David Gilmour, in the key of E.
You'll also learn the secret behind his great sounding solos. Using the neck position pickup is best for this tone, Neal is using a Les Paul with the neck position pickup with just a little bit of gain.

Fun fact: Gilmour played a 50s gold top Les Paul straight into the board (no amp) for his legendary solo in "The Wall."
