Hey Luv,

I haven't been able to bring up the mp3 player and I've had no problem with others and I don't have a popup blocker problem.
So . . . . . . maybe that's why we can't comment? :?:

Hi LuvGilmour,

It seems you can play all the parts, but you are having real trouble getting it together rhythmically.

Slow it way down until you can get it all in at the proper speed.

You are missing the bass note before all the strums in the intro and go off by a fret in the solo.

Listen to it carefully and work it a section at a time.

You aren't too far away.

Yeh like Nick said, listen to the real song and your version. If your really LISTEN you can begin to hear the little nuances that really make a song or solo sound great. The timing for a solo like that is critical, so make sure you get the licks down and then work it up.

I tried to post last night but my server went down, what I wanted to say was you've got the parts down but you need to work on how they go together maybe stay on the rythym part a little longer before the segue into the solo for 1 bar then back to the rythym part. Make it breathe rather than keeping it static.

When I attempted this song I just went for the strumming part until I got the timing down. Actually I still can't play it the same way it sounds in the original but I did get down my own easier version. You seem to have more parts right then I bothered with so just try strumming it though until the timing is there then you already have the other parts. I planned on making this the next song I put on my soundclick in a day or two so you can hear all the parts I didn't bother with

Nice job. I love playing this song, it's a blast. I think Nick is right about getting it together rythmically. RELAX and feel the song. I think your shoulders are too hunched up ; ) The space between the notes are as important as the notes themselves. My favorite part of the beginning solo is in the first and second measures, the pull-off and then the slide on the A string and the two open D's. It sounds sweet with perfect timing. I smile everytime I nail it. Let that dotted quarter note ring for a moment before the slide.
PINK FLOYD SHOULD BE PLAYED WITH FEELING!!! Think of something depressing before you pick up your axe. Hang a picture of your old dog, the one that you accidentlly hit with your pickup truck, on your sheet music. The one that died just before your girl left you. I listen to "Free Four" before I play ANY Floyd :(

I would say it's coming along, little more polishing and you'll have it, good job.

You have gotten some sage advice so-far :D I would add that maybe you should try playing along with the record. Back in the 70's I played with a band that would play along with the record to learn songs( we hooked the turntable up to the PA).. It worked really good for us :D --good tone, keep at it, you almost got it--the dog
