Get the tone
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.
