Pink Floyd – Shine On You Crazy Diamond Part I-V
Cover of the Studio Version from “Wish You Were Here” Album
This song, sound and playing, is one of the reason why I absolutely wanted to play the electric guitar. The emotions I still feel when I play or listen to it, is still incredible. I covered the various solos paying tribute to Mr. David and trying to recreate the original feeling as much as possible.
I had some difficult to record the first solo in time, being the backing without the click … but I really love this backing, and that’s why I chose it anyway…. The studio version of this track have a unique clean but powerful sound! I enjoy a lot trying to recreate it, hoping to be successful in the result!!!
