ok ive been playing for almost a year and ive been wondering how David Gilmour or anyone holds long notes and keep them going? i also wanna know, during the solo in the video (below), how does he make it go really high (i know its bending but he does more than that)? does most of it have to do with the tone? is he using a pedal? i have a strat just in case you needed to know.

Feedback, sustainers, and compressors can all make your notes last a long time

^I'd let a pro look at it. Once you get into the technicalities of screws...well, it's just a place you don't want to be, friend.
The vid is being lame so...can't say much.

Long notes? If he is using effects he is probably using some sort of delay.
Compressors for sustain and Whammy for pitch shift.

I consider myself to be really intelligent and I've gotten into a fight coz this kid thought it was nasty to put sour cream on enchiladas.
