    waiting for comments / criticism / death threats.

    listen to the song 100 times more. When you think melody and bends have sunk in - give it a shot. But before that practice!!!.

    Gimour is not a shredder but he can shred anyone with his priceless melodies.

    @ poster - seriously dude, ur version deserves a death threat man! I actually think i wud have slapped u if u had played tht on stage in front of me! I swear!

    well thank you for the death threat, but i lacked the equipment so it sounded bad. what can you expect from laptop speakers and no fx ?

    may be when i own or can access it, i will record it and then put 'em up for comments.

    donations for the equipment will be accepted :D

    Keep practicing!
    Gilmour lives the note in any state - he can make a simple riff or tune sound like out of the world - and you would practice for months to get to that. Guitar equipments matter but not all.

    He values bob seeger a lot (his only mentor in early days). This guy could play his heart out with simple rhythm and melody. I feel its just a thing about cultivation - you recieve something and take it from there.

    Its not abt the equipment man! U can make it sound much better....way way waaaaay better than that on acoustic guitar itself - try checkin out Floyd's acoustic version of the same song, if u dont believe me...

    U want feedback, i`ll give u feedback - but plz ensure tht u take it well and work harder to improve...

    U`re timing is seriously fcuked up man! Ur bends are awry - all u`re doin is hitting the right notes most times, but the timing is bad, the bends are bad.....and tht totally ruins the song.

    Wht u shud be doing, assuming frm ur playing tht u`re a nOOb, is to

    a.) Pick up ur acoustic and practise ur lessons on tht
    b.) Hope u have a Melbay or a Manoloff or something..... play tht day in day out
    c.) Play scales - i never did tht and i still repent it - scales will help u know ur fretboard better and move faster and smoother.
    d.) Dont pick up electric songs if u dont have a processor - try honing ur skills on acoustic songs
    e.) Finger exercises man !!! Bends, slides, some Finger Gymnastics will certainly help u...

    Dont blame lack of instruments man! I connect to my comp too....skill and technology are totally different stuph! I know my shit to know the difference! :lol:
