what are most of the scales used in the 70-80's songs from pink floyd? and some of the tequniqe, common styles of playing, in general, im asking how i can sound like them (they are the best band ever)
any ideas?

just penatonics and from an interview with mr.gilmour himself, he has no style

but IMO its really bluesly

oh yeah and lots of bends and whammy bar action
Gear:
Fender MIA Strat w/EMG SA's
Fender Super 60
Boss RT-20 Rotary Sim
Ibanez AD-9 Analog Delay
EHX Big Muff

dude, thank you, you just made me realise something.

you are right that he had no style. like if you notice in a lot of their songs, almost every one is diffrent. like lets take the great gig in the sky for example. very slow, only a few arpegiotic chords sliding up, not much style. but when you look at young lust, its a lot difrent, at a lot more like normal classic rock style. so to be like them, you need to just plain be god damn creative. thanks again man

You say he has no style, and yet you described his style.


It's not so much about scales as it is about having an ear for the right notes at the right time. Gilmour knows his fretboard inside out. It's all about being as clean and tasteful as possible. Playing exactly what's needed and not overdoing it.
