    Thank you for this very well structured lesson! I am a beginner on bass and imagined that this song was difficult, and now I see that with a little effort I can play most of it. Roger Waters really hit gold with the bass lines he wrote for this song.

    Thank you very much, this is great. I have a little question : in the guitar solo section, the Em bass line, shouldn’t it be E, D#, D, C (on the 3rd fret of the A string, instead of the 4th) ? At 1st I thought my bass was out of tune (and it probably is) but then I looked at the score and it says it’s a C, right ? Thanks again for everything !

    This is great! I am working my way through Hal Leonard’s books, which is fine but SLOW and not always very interesting. Exploring this lesson will be a welcome break. Thank you.
