    I downloaded a soundboard from a late 70's David Gilmour solo show.
    I'm not sure if he was touring "About Face," but he does a couple selections from "The Wall."
    It's the tour for "All lovers are deranged," which is a great song.

    But man...

    I was just knocked out by the man's playing.
    He does an extended "Comfortably numb" solo, that is just beyond gorgeous.
    He nails the recorded solo, but then just goes off...

    And the guy singing Roger Water's parts is awesome.

    I think Gilmour has the most refined strat tone i have ever heard.
    Does he use those lace sensor pickups?

    His tone is flawless, with no strat buzz.

    My favorite "Comfortably Numb" version is from The Delicate Sound of Thunder . It's also one of my top picks for a live album .
    The whole band is fantastic , but Gilmour stands out as a true master . His touch and feel are second to none . Very tasty and melodic playing , throughout .
    "There's a little bit of Van Halen in everyone ..."
    "Who Dares , Wins ..."
    "Van Halen was never about the singer ..."

    And his voice is great. too.

    But, man, his solo's on this solo show are just incredible.
    The phrasing, the tone, the bends...
    He does not hit one bum note, and this is an unauthorized bootleg from '79.

    I mainly DL'd it just for the couple Floyd tracks, but i like the entire set, which is mainly his
    solo album from that time.

    He's one of those guys that can play the blues scale, yet make it sound exotic, somehow.

    I gotta find out more about his gear, during this era.

    His strat is clear as a bell, but with the harmonics jumping out.
    Some nifty bar work on this recording, too.

    I have an issue of Guitar Shop , that has Gilmour on the cover .
    There's a very in-depth article about his gear , from the early days and onward . It's pretty detailed ; pickups , amps , effects , etc.

    I went thrift/antique shopping today and had a lot of good finds.

    Queensryche- Operation Mindcrime
    Tesla- Mechanical Resonance
    Blue Murder's self titled
    and some LA Guns CD because why the fuck not. Each of them were a dollar and no scratches.
    Ready, Eddie!

    Nice! A top tip for anyone with scratched cds...............use turtle wax to fill the scratches. Let it dry and buff off the excess with a clean towel. The wax will fill in the scratches and the cd should play quite nicely again.

    I've been ODing on Kiss after reading Ace's book. I can't get enough of the first 6 albums.

    Dad showed me this cool jazz trio called the Bad Plus, who are famous for making jazz version of famous rock songs. I like their original tunes more, though.
