Watch the Play In The Style of David Gilmour online guitar lesson by Angus Clark from Play in the Style of David Gilmour
Hi, I'm Angus Clark and welcome to Play in the Style of David Gilmour. David Gilmour has been an inspiration to me since before I ever picked up the electric guitar. Before hearing Gilmour, I had only had a few lessons (mostly on classical guitar), and my only exposure to rock music had been The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and the Monkees. All great bands to be sure, but when I heard David Gilmour play with Pink Floyd, that was the first time I heard someone speak with such a unique voice on the guitar that I knew it was something I had to do. I cannot escape what I was listening to when I was thirteen. It is a part of me.
While I don't advocate mimicry as the be-all and end-all refining one's craft, some experience with deconstructing and interpreting the styles of the greats is part of broadening one's self as a player. That's what we're inviting you to do with this course. I'll demonstrate all of the solos for you and then break them down note-for-note. Everything is tabbed and notated, plus you'll get the jam tracks to work with on your own. Ready to get started? Grab your guitar and let's dig in!
