Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: ROCK -

David Gil­mour’s record­ings of­ten fea­ture him us­ing a Fen­der Stra­to­caster. He does how­ever use other gui­tars for stu­dio work such as a Gib­son Les Paul Gold Top and 24-fret cus­tom. The ex­am­ples in this month’s au­dio were recorded with a 50 an­niver­sary Fen­der Stra­to­caster plugged into a 90s Fen­der Deville 2x12 combo. The over­drive came cour­tesy of an Ibanez tube screamer and a Full­tone Fuzz pedal. The de­lay sounds were cre­ated with a TC Elec­tronic flash­back X4 de­lay pedal. The ideas in this ar­ti­cle can be played on any type of guitar. All of the pickup se­lec­tions and ef­fects are no­tated along­side the rel­e­vant ex­am­ples.
