Comfortably Gilmour - Lick 33 is a video guitar lesson presented by Chris Buono and is sourced from 50 Rock Guitar Licks You MUST Know.


There's a certain technique known to many, but mastered by few that expresses infinite wisdom and forever cool--it's called space. Sometimes saying nothing at all says everything as heard here in this David Gilmour-esque lick that recalls a moment in the guitarist's first solo break in Pink Floyd's masterpiece "Comfortably Numb". Another component in Gilmour's artful soloing is his use of triplets played slightly behind the beat that help make his licks sound as if they're floating like pigs on the wing.
