Watch the Doggy One online guitar lesson by Angus Clark from Play in the Style of David Gilmour
Some of Gilmour's playing on Animals is really outside the box from the rest of the catalogue and you can hear him pushing the limits. We're switching scales on a downbeat to meet a chord change, and we're using syncopations in the lead part to stay in the groove with the band. This is the kind of lick that may point up some underlying frailties in your knowledge base and skill set - which means it provides you an opportunity to work on your scale knowledge and rhythmic sense. I recommend pursuing it as it it's all fun stuff and definitely rewarding regardless of your application.
