fingerstyle guitar version of the iconic Pink Floyd song
DADGAD tuning (well, the same intervals but starting on A#)
A few months ago I stumbled back upon Pink Floyd's "The Wall" which didn't only give me midlife crisis when I was twelve but also sparked a deep love for music and the guitar in particular.
I'm still in love with David Gilmour's guitar voice to this day but, since I don't have the faintest clue what to do with an electric guitar, I decided to pick up my baritone and see what I could do with the acoustic guitar tools I've picked up over the years. Playing this is a blast and I hope you like the result!

AWSOME INTERPRETATION! I love the alternate tuning on that!
Just amazing.....bet my neighbours love it more. 2 sets of tannoys. Sounds like it really live getting played in the frontroom. Oh yeah.
Chuck Norris made a bath take a shower.
I feel sick as the background is moving around so much..
This is pretty much my favourite thing on youtube, awesome! One day I'll have this version woked out.... slightly, in the very very distant future!
This song is about the voicing - too much emphasis on rhythm, guitars make crap drum sounds. Using the guitar for percussion is lame, it's nearly as irritating as auto tune.
It's mind-boggling all the different guitar techniques you use! Also I've never seen such camera angles! Such a nice sounding guitar even though you put a camera inside of it. You have a unique interpretation of this song, like you re-invented the song! Thanks for sharing your talent and so nice to see what chords you were playing.
When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.
This is what youtube is all about. This is so fabulous. My fav Pink Floyd song. Dave Gilmour is such a hero and so tasteful. This performance has all the theatre of Pink Floyd with such beautiful harmonies. Davo
Shades of Tuck Andress. Also, a kick in the dick to my own confidence as a player, but incredible nonetheless!
