Well Done Mr.Gilmour
omg! yes! I've been longing for a Floydian slip.
excellent job, learning now
Great lesson. Thanks!
The wall is playing in my head right now
Very cool lesson!
this is pretty cool. im not much of a pink floyd fan, but this is still a good lesson!
first video doesnt work at my computer. Only fist second...
im just wondering, when i click on tab, it doesnt say the notes to the chords, but it says the notes to the single string part. Is this intentional or what.....
THIS LESSON IS AWESOME!!!!!!!1
I loved that. Gilmour is my fav guitarist.
Great lesson! Long live Pink Floyd
I'm not a huge Pink Floyd Fan, but great lesson
what amp settings are you using?
I have GP 5.0, but for some reason when I click on the link on this page all I get is a bit of text. Does anyone know why?
Another great lesson. Keep em coming!
re: Rock "I have GP 5.0, but for some reason when I click on the link on this page all I get is a bit of text. Does anyone know why?"
Just checking that GP5 file Rock, and I made it on GP5.2 which was released at the start of this year I believe.
Perhaps you may need to check for an updated version? - just a guess that. I've just opened it and it seemed to open fine.
re: jimi hendrix - what amp settings are you using?
I used a SansAmp to record this one with pretty standard bass and treble settings (nothing set 'over the top'), with a Boss DS1 distortion pedal and a Quadraverb Delay.
Live I would normally use a tube amp for this type of sound. Mostly a Peavey Classic 2 x 12, using the dirty channel, with a Boss DD3 Delay Pedal going through the loop in/out.
Rock: Have you tried first saving the GP file on your computer, and then open it from there?

I've got the same trouble, and yes, first i saved the file on my computer and then i opened it... Maybe it's because we don't have GP 5.2 version...
I checked and I do have vers 5.2
I have a iMac so I can't right click and save as like on a PC. My only option other than click to open is to drag and drop, but no such luck when I try to open this way either. Arggh!
I have a Mac, there is no such thing as right click. The entire mouse clicks up and down with a scroll button in the middle.
how does he get that quick note sound at the end of the biinnnngggg biinnnggg binnnnngg biinnnnnnngg biinnnnngggg binnnnngggg binnngggggg binnnnnnggg binnnggggggg bing bonk
how do you make that bing bonk sound at the end? I cant get it to do that. Is it a hammer on? Pull off? Mute the string? I give.
looks like a pulloff enhanced by the delay effect
re: Nick7744 - "how do you make that bing bonk sound at the end?"
Yeh shellshock1911 is right,that's done by pulling off the 15th fret (b string), to the 13th, and bending the 13th up immediately with the first finger. You can bend it back up almost to the 15th but not quite that far.
You need to use your ear on it and play the bend until it sounds as you want. Listen closely to the chord/music underlying it and make sure it fits it nicely.
This is getting into ear training territory, and your musical ear is like a muscle that needs to be trained. I would suggest to listen to a player like Albert King who played some wonderful stuff along these lines.
The first step in getting this type of stuff off, is to get it into your head first. This is why I always emphasise in my lessons not to rely solely on tab (a great tool if used correctly), which doesn't provide this type of training. And it is essential ear-training to play authentic Blues bends and other lead.
The best way to get this ear-training up to scratch, is to work with say a CD section of a solo piece you want to learn.
Plug in your guitar and set it to the sound you'll use.
Use headphones to listen to exactly how the player is playing the phrase or lick on the CD
When you have it in your head, try to copy it on the guitar.
When you are reasonably happy with it, record yourself playing it and listen to the playback VERY closely. Is it the same? Is it a bit flat?
I would suggest to loop the section you are learning on your PC with some audio software (like say Cubase, or record it with your PCs Windows recorder etc), play it until it is totally in your head, then transfer it to the guitar.
It sounds a lot on paper but it is a relatively fast process if you work on one piece at a time. Eventually you will build up an arsenal of your own favorites. Then (and here's the tricky part , you must adapt all the bits to make your own recognisable style!
In this example you know exactly where it's played on the frets and the method used. So it's just a matter of practising it DAILY until it becomes second nature. When you have it under your belt, move onto the next one.
Here's a bit of info on that particular bing bonk (I like that :
It's hard to notate properly as it is a type of bend which is close to a "micro bend" as it's sometimes called. It falls halfway between the frets as such. It's just a quick "flick" of the note as such.
Tab: Notice the "p" below the 15th, standing for "pull-off" (it's easy to overlook, I just did it myself a moment ago).
If you need any more help on it just post away, I'll keep a close eye on it until you have it sorted.
Other players I would suggest to listen to regarding this technique would be B.B. King for pure Blues, and Gary Moore for Rock/Blues. There's a lot more I could list here, please let me know if you would like further players I would suggest which would help in this area.
re: jimi hendrix -what amp settings are you using?
For this lesson I recorded into the desk with a SanaAmp (bass, treble + drive set around the halfway point, a small bit of presence added), a Quadraverb delay, a Boss DS1 distortion (Tone 11:45, Dist 12:00) and a Zoom GFX-707 with the noise gate full on).
But live I would suggest and use an overdriven Tube/Valve amp and a Boss DD3 delay pedal.
re: stratman33: "im just wondering, when i click on tab, it doesnt say the notes to the chords, but it says the notes to the single string part. Is this intentional or what..... "
The tab for the chords is shown on the video 4 text.
Hmm seems I posted the amp settings post twice D'oh!
"I have a Mac, there is no such thing as right click."
try holding down "Ctrl" while clicking on the link. That would be the same function as if you right click on a PC.
Yes, I just tried this tonight and it works, yeah! I sent GP an email and they suggested this as well. I actually had tried this last week, but for whatever reason when it saves the copy to the desktop it adds a .txt extension and creates a text file so it still wouldn't open properly. When I tried it again tonight, I deleted the extension to see what would happen and my Mac asked if I wanted to use the .gp5 file extension. I said ok and presto I now have GP5 files so I created a folder with all these lessons. Most excellent! Thanks for the tip, just happened that you both answered me at the exact same time. Must be karma
On a mac ... CNTRL + Left click = rightclick
Hey,i dun know the trick u use to make the muting between the first barre chords?Is it palm muting?Thanks
re: ZaKk WyLdE 'Hey,i dun know the trick u use to make the muting between the first barre chords?Is it palm muting?Thanks'
Good q ZaKk. Yes indeed it is a lefthand palm mute.
After you have played the chord, immediately lift the righthand off the strings, just touching but stopping them ringing to deaden them fast, and then simulataneously mute all strings with a lefthand palm mute. I'll add that to the text actually, I overlooked it - cheers! D
Whoops just read that last post back and it's back to front - should read:

This lesson is pretty good. btw Nice guitar
I must say this is probably the best lesson I've seen on GMC, I remember deciding not to learn it when it came, but damn. I'm gonna have to learn it asap.
