Echoes it’s one of the greatest phrasing/amazing sounds ever done by Mr. David.
On top of the studio version, there are at least two live versions which I like a lot: the Pompeii one (1970) and the Gdansk one (2008).

In this page I covered parts of all the three versions.

  • STUDIO VERSION: this is the AUDIO of the Intro of the Studio version of Echoes Part 1

  • STUDIO VERSION: this is the VIDEO

  • POMPEII VERSION: this is the AUDIO of the Pompeii Solo of Echoes Part 1

  • POMPEII VERSION: this is the VIDEO (it is a both GUITAR & BASS cover of Echoes Part 1 SOLO; as a tribute to my city, I choose the Rome’s monuments as background … anyway an Italian place like Pompeii :-)))

  • GDANSK VERSION: this is the AUDIO of the Gdansk version of Echoes Part 1 played live by Gilmour in 2008

  • GDANSK VERSION: this is the VIDEO of the Intro Part

    waste your traffic, you can earn additional bucks

    I just had to comment and say not only was I impressed with your playing and tabbing, how refreshing to follow a link for tabs and you actually spoil us with them! No “subscribe to my youtube” no $$$. That is class act for broke people such as myself. Massively appreciated!!!

    Also now you have me looking into that Boss GT10. Waiting on my tax refund and wanting to set up something to record/ play with, that can eliminate the need to buy a million pedals. I was going to just go the Amplitude/Pod Farm route but this GT10 seems pretty spiffy. I noticed the GT-100 as well a few months ago but I am likely to be chasing your tone at this point.

    Hello Maurizio,

    Just getting back to the guitar after a too long hiatus and mostly inclined to play Floyd and Santana. I’ve been focused on Gilmour’s On and Island and working on Echoes by ear from the Live at Gdsk album. Your tabs excellent and have really helped fill in the parts that I’ve been not quite getting, especially the chords and riffing sections which I’ve found hard to play by ear. THanks for this labour of love. Owen

    I am really surprised you don’t have more comments on this. I’ve been listening to floyd since the 80’s when I was in my teens and echoes has always been one of my favourites. You’ve really inspired my to learn how to play it. I’ve spent months tweaking my tone and so far the only solo that i’ve learned is from Mother. Thanks to you, Echoes is going to be my second!

      Thanks a lot Allan, glad to be useful!!!! I’m planning more songs in the next future;-)

    Awesome Maurizio! I just came across your video you really got the sound from the Pompeii version. I am going to start to learn it soon – I love playing the solo from Mother (Poorly) but it is fun. I love David Gilmour and Pink Floyd, I been listening to Pink Floyd for years and really started to appreciate how good the guitar from “Echos” is…I always loved it but more even now. Thank you!

      Thanks to you! I plan to cover also other live version of Echoes, each time Gilmour played it live, he add some special “notes”!
