Default Pink Floyd Great Gig in the Sky

Hi, Everyone. I just recorded a little clip of myself playing my take in Floyd's Great Gig in the Sky. I figured out the piano intro by ear and thought it would be fun to improvise over the vamp after it. I played the intro then hit my loop pedal for the vamp and improvised over it. I thought I would share it with you all. Thanks!

Thank so much everyone for the kind words. I really appreciate your listening and feedback. I have always been more of an electric player, but two years ago I got a nylon string and fell in love with it. I haven't even really played much of my electric at all ince I got the nylon string (I now have a few nylon string guitars). I am really enjoying seeing what all I can do on the nylon string. I am really loving it. I do a mix of picking and fingerpicking on it Thank you all for this great site!

You might enjoy trying out these unusual strings on one of your guitars.
'John Pearse' by Thomastik-Infeld.
All 6 strings are wound.
I have them on my 45 year old all-laminate Takamine and they sound and feel fantastic.

That is great stuff, Bill! I enjoy hearing electric players tear it up acoustic 👍
