In this note-for-note video series we are going to tackle Pink Floyd’s classic “Comfortably Numb”.
This haunting tune has two of David Gilmour’s most well known solo’s in it. You can study these solo’s as the blueprint for creating a gorgeous and melodic solo using pentatonic based playing.

Most of the rhythm guitar work in this tutorial is just showing you the chord progressions that the orchestra is playing since there is very little guitar played during the non-solo sections of the tune except for some scant acoustic guitar here and there and the power chord rhythm under the outro solo.

This video guitar lesson series consists of 5 videos total, the performance video and 4 note-for-note video lessons covering all the rhythm guitar parts, main solo and outro solo respectively. Good luck!! 😀

  15. love how some of ya'll are talkin shit but i don't see ya'll puttin up lesson videos. so like.. whatever

  16. to start with you probably wanna go for 2-finger power chords starting with B5 (forefinger tip on E-string 7th fret, ring finger flat on A- and D-string 9th fret, other strings below muted by the rest of your forefinger) playing B5 A5 G5 F#5 E5, it's very easy, only one chord hand position, slide B5 up the neck 2-2-1-2 frets, all 5 chords done. also veeery nice to play with heavy distortion

  17. eu tenho apenas 13 anos e vou aprender essa música , parabéns Lesson

  18. Wonderful lessons!!!! Do you have HD500 patches you can provide? Thanks sooo much!!
