NEW Pink Floyd Ukulele Slide Comfortably Numb first solo by Wayne Sorbelli at Island Guitar Music Store in Key West Florida.
I stayed after a day of teaching guitar and ukulele lessons at my music shop in Key West and decided to play along to some Pink Floyd backing tracks that I have. Pink Floyd has long been one of my favorite bands, and David Gilmour one of my all-time favorite guitarists! The way he bends and shakes the notes gives his guitar a human vocal quality that very few guitarists can achieve. One of my favorite guitar solos of all-time is Gilmour’s first solo on Comfortably Numb – so I thought it’d be appropriate for my new experiment – Can I play this epic famous solo with my glass finger slide on my guitar? Then, when reaching for my guitar I saw my ukulele sitting there and decided I’d give it try on the tiny baby guitar like instrument instead? lol Why Not? – then I thought it would cool to try with my glass finger slide ON THE UKULELE!
I’m glad I did!!!
