David Gilmour - Meltdown Festival 2001


David Gilmour is one of the best guitar players, undoubtedly. The sound of his guitar is unique and unmistakable, and he touches our souls with his guitar playing. Gilmour is most associated as a lead guitarist. His own solo style is often characterized by blues-influenced phrasing, expressive note bends and sustain. In 2011, Gilmour was rated the 14th greatest guitarist by Rolling Stone magazine. In January 2007, Guitar World readers voted Gilmour's solos, "Comfortably Numb", "Time" and "Money" into the top 100 Greatest Guitar Solos ("Comfortably Numb" was voted the 4th," Time" was voted the 21st and "Money" was voted the 62nd greatest solo of all time).


In 1996, Gilmour was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Pink Floyd. Gilmour's solo on "Comfortably Numb" was voted as one of the greatest guitar solos of all time in several polls by listeners and critics. Although mainly known for his guitar work, Gilmour is also a proficient multi-instrumentalist. He also plays bass guitar (which he did on many Pink Floyd tracks), keyboards, synthesiser, banjo, lap steel, mandolin, harmonica, drums (as heard on the Syd Barrett solo track "Dominoes", and other songs where he opted to play all the instruments) and lately, the saxophone.

So, we want to share two bootlegs (of the same show) of Mr. Gilmour playing Floyd songs in a more acoustic sessions...
