Atom Heart Mother

Atom Heart Mother was always for me a great piece of music. I loved all the suit and it was a great pleasure cover some parts with the guitar. Here I covered three parts:

  1. the SLIDE guitar SOLO,
  2. an improvisation on the Choral part,
  3. the funky blues solo which was a pearl of Mr. David in its simplicity and efficacy.

I used my Fender Stratocaster Vintage USA’57 (year 1986) and some BOSS GT10 User Sounds.

Part 1 (SLIDE Solo) … not common as the others… is a fantastic guitar solo from David Gilmour in 1969 on a great Organ Chords Structure …

Part 2 was an improvisation over Atom Heart Mother Choral Part in Eminor. I didn’t resist to do an improvisation on such a good backing part and I was inspired from a sound of my GT 10 that I like very very much…

Part 3 was the Atom Heart Mother Funky Blues in Gminor (I like this solo from Gilmour since I was 18 years old… more than 20 years passed now :-((( and it was an honor for me to register it and broadcast… )

Backing Track of the part 3 was done by myself extracting the audio from the original Pink Floyd track (I made two versions, one with the standard lenght and one extended to improvise on):

    Great, Thank you.
    But can you send me the settings of your patches.
    I have a GT 100 and I try to do the slide parts, but I can’t have a good sound.
    Thank you so much.
