Just wanted to say that the front page looks great! Excellent job Yousha.


All credit goes to Mr. George gray

and on High Hopes, the studio version is a MUST for Gilmours list...

for the live version, Id go with any really, my faves the one from his solo career in 2007 at the Festival Hall, the PULSE version would probably be the most suitable

David Gilmour:

Atom Heart Mother- Probably David Gilmour's first classic performance, the twenty three minute epic contains wonderous playing.

Time- The blessedly drawn-out notes and expert bends in this solo make for some beautiful music.

Money- This song is a classic rock staple due in no small part to Gilmour's massive guitar solo.

Any Colour You Like- With an irresistable watery tone, the guitar of this song makes for a groovy and highly texturized instrumental.

Shine On You Crazy Diamond(Pts. I-V)- This benchmark, nine-part suite has numerous stylistic shifts, and the each movement is kept moving along by Gilmour's soloing ability.

Shine On You Crazy Diamond(Pts. VI-IX)- See previous.

Have a Cigar- Not a bad hook at the beginning, but the end solo is what its all about. Absolutely ripping.

Wish You Were Here- Great acoustic play from Gilmour, something I wish he tried more often. Fantastic heartfelt intro solo.

Pigs(Three Different Ones)- Aside from another vintage Gilmour performance, he interestingly also plays bass on this song.

Dogs- Kept afloat by rigourous strumming and typical electric excellence, this seventeen minute marvel doesn't have dull moment.

Hey You- A somewhat ominous performance, the wailing guitar and powerful rhythm behind make the most of the time Gilmour was allotted for this one.

Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2- Very nice playing at the end, love the relaxed feel of it.

The Thin Ice- Some powerful playing here, the mighty notes that introduce the solo are enough to send shivers down any spine.

Comfortably Numb- No introduction needed.

On the Turning Away- Sounds pretty much like any Gilmour solo, but it is a great one.

Marooned- Wonderful lamenting solo, probably his best recorded performance since Comf. Numb

Coming Back to Life- Great guitar all around, Gilmour plays with a bit of twang here.

High Hopes

Nice list, gray. What about The Thin Ice? Always thought that was a killer solo.

What about "Live at Ronnie Scott's" for Jeff Beck? It's recent and has some of his best recorded live work.

Studio version of Red House is essential. Not so sure about Fire.
