It goes without saying that you should use a Stratocaster type guitar with vintage style single coil pickups for the majority of Gilmour's tones, and most importantly, learn to play in a similar style.
For early Pink Floyd tones, up to the Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and Animals period, you need: A Fuzz Face type pedal, a compressor, warm sounding analog type delay, and modulation like a Uni-vibe type pedal or a phaser like a MXR Phase 90 or EHX Small Stone.
Modulation like Boss chorus and a Uvi-Vibe type pedal can also be used, but David used very little modulation in this period.
Gear selection helps, but much of the tone comes from the way the strings are played.
Touching the thumb to the string when picking is extremely important in creating subtle note coloring harmonics in solos.
This is not a comprehensive list of every effect Gilmour ever used, but just a general guide for getting the tones.
Includes: compressors, fuzz/distortions, overdrives, equalizer, flangers/chorus and other modulations, delays, and amplifiers.
After the 1917 Bolshevik revolution in Russia an utopian avant-garde movement inspired by Futurism and Anarchistic ideas developed which included radical new music and performance.
New, atonal, music was written, new types of theatre evolved and new instruments invented to bring about this utopian age; Arseney Avraamov conducted a huge symphony of sirens involving warships, factory hooters and artillery and proposed the destruction of all pianos to free music of fixed tonation.Again, this avant-garde movement was finally suppressed in favour of conservative fascist popular culture during the late 1930s.’120 Years Of Electronic Music’ is an ongoing web project initiated in 1995 by the author and musician [email protected] allows David to use many different pedals, yet still sound like himself.Much of what people think is the gear making a solo sound good is simply the fingers making the gear sound good.Analog Synthesiser (12) Analogue Sample (3) Armand Givelet (3) Berlin (2) Boris Yankovsky (2) Canada (3) CCRMA (2) Computer (10) Computer Music (4) Digital Synthesiser (9) Dr Freidrich Trautwein (3) Early Electronic Music (4) Electronic Instrument (3) Electronic Music (10) Electronic Music Studio (5) Electronic Musical Instrument (6) Fonosynth (2) France (9) Germany (23) Graphic Synthesiser (4) Harald Bode (7) Heterodyning (10) John M Hanert (4) Jörg Mager (3) Laurens Hammond (3) Leon Termen (5) Max Mathews (4) Modular Synthesiser (4) Moscow (2) NASA (3) Optical Synthesis (3) Organ (3) Oskar Vierling (4) Peter Zinovieff (2) Photoelectric (16) Russia (17) Synket (2) Telharmonium (3) Theremin (4) Tone Wheel (10) Transistor (10) United Kingdom (9) USA (34) Vacuum Tube (57) Winston E.
