Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers questions from off of his Guitar Blog website...

Q). I'm a huge Pink Floyd fan and of course that means I'm also a fan of David Gilmour's guitar style. He plays extremely smooth and I was wondering if you could break it down in a guitar lesson what kind of scales he uses. While doing this, I was hoping that you could also demonstrate how he applies the scale shapes with maybe a few 'Gilmour style' guitar lick examples. Thanks!

A). The approach used by David Gilmour for the bulk of his scale ideas, is largely based upon the Blues scale and Minor Pentatonic, with a lot of reference to the Major 2nd degree from the Dorian mode. It's quick to hear on many of his solos, such as the one he plays in the Pink Floyd song, "Yet Another Movie." That solo is largely pentatonic thrashing for the most part, but it's also full of feeling. And, when we analyze the way he uses the; Blues, his bends and the obvious strong connection he has toward players like; Clapton, Jeff Beck and the Muddy Waters & John Lee Hooker sound... we end up with an instantly recognizable tone only associated to the David Gilmour style.
