Pink Floyd's David Gilmour Gig Review

Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour Gig Review Royal Albert Hall London.

David Gilmour has been playing since he was 9 and @ the Royal Albert Hall he showd that he was perhaps the greatest electric guitar its on the planet! All the the key elements  came together to make this Royal Albert Hall a truly brilliant performance.  There is something quite majestic about the way Gilmour sweetly bends his notes effortlessly making each not swing so sweetly . The guitar is a magical thing and when you hear the seminal Wish You Where Here in a magnificent venue like the Royal Albert Hall you  know the guitar is the finest most versatile instrument in existence. The new single Rattle That Lock, is the strongest single featuring electric guitar since Daft Punks Get Lucky.

Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour Gig Review

 “Comfortably Numb” was simply magnificent with Gilmour soloing fluidly & freely playing what is considered by some to be the greatest electric guitar solo of all time.

During the Albert Hall show he performed several Pink Floyd classics including “Us and Them” live for the first time. As expected, each note-perfect, each tune a gigantic version of the studio version, which is why the Floyd songs inevitably stand tall above almost every rock song of the last 30 years. Overall  its fair to say we loved the show and without question Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour is a must see for all guitar lovers!

Fender Stratocaster a musicians best Friend

When it was launched in 1954, the Fender Stratocaster looked so far ahead of its time it could have fallen from a flying saucer.

That futuristic design was thanks in part to Western swing guitarist, Bill Carson. Frustrated by what he regarded as shortcomings on the earlierTelecaster, Bill pestered Leo Fender to improve the guitar with body contouring, more pickups and a vibrato unit.

Instead, Leo and his team went back to the drawing board. Like the Telecaster, Leo’s new guitar had an ash body (alder was introduced in 1956) and a bolt-on maple neck. There the similarity ends.

The double cutaway body, lifted from the ’51 Precision Bass, was contoured for comfort (“It fits better to your body like a well tailored shirt,” said Carson) then loaded with three single-coil pickups and an innovative vibrato, albeit misnamed as a ‘synchronized tremolo’.

The Strat not only looks the absolute balls, its instantly recognisable tone unites guitarists as diverse as Buddy Holly, soul legend Curtis Mayfield, Eric Clapton, Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora and Slipknot’s Jim Root.

Yngwie Malmsteen wouldn’t unleash the fury on anything less; Stevie Ray Vaughan called his battered ’63 model ‘Number One’. In Wayne’s World, a white ’64 Strat is Wayne Campbell’s ‘Excalibur’. “It will be mine. Oh, yes!”

The Strat is Jimi Hendrix mangling The Star-Spangled Banner at Woodstock in 1969 and Mark Knopfler’s ’61 ringing out on Sultans Of Swing. Like the song says, ‘an old guitar is all he can afford’.

It’s Hank Marvin of The Shadows playing the first UK-imported Stratocaster on echo-drenched classics such as Wonderful Land (1961) and Jeff Beck’s devastating whammy control on Where Were You (on 1989’s Guitar Shop).

The Strat has been tweaked relentlessly over the years: a rosewood fingerboard in 1958; a big headstock in ’66; a five-way switch in ’77 (after players began jamming the three-way switch to ‘in between positions’); locking vibratos and humbuckers, thanks to Eddie Van Halen’s influence; and more recently, a nine-and-a-half-inch or even 12-inch fingerboard radius for easier string bending.

Pimping aside, whether it’s an entry-level Squier or a top-of-the-line Custom Shop model, the DNA of all Strats can be traced back to Leo Fender’s drawing board in Fullerton, California.
