Gilmour - One of the Best Guitarists of All-Time
Cementing his place in the international music scene, David Gilmour found initial success as the lead guitarist of Pink Floyd. He played an important role in earning the ensemble an induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame as well as UK Music Hall of Fame. Gilmour's unique guitar style has inspired many, prompting youngsters and veterans to copy his smooth bends and pentatonic tricks. David Gilmour has also produced music for other artists and in 2015 alone, composed tracks for Royal Philharmonic Orchestra's latest album "Plays Prog Rock Classics" and "Truancy: The Best of Pete Townshend" for Pete Townshend. His crisp instrumentation and incredible hooks engage the listeners from the beginning.
David Gilmour has treated the fans to three solo albums and his fourth one "Rattle That Lock" is ready to take the world by storm. His last solo record came out in 2006 on his birthday. Titled "On an Island", it has sealed his place as the tasteful one - tasty guitar work, gorgeous jazzy blues melodies and plaintive, soulful vocals. Full of iconic solos, it includes dramatic numbers like "Take a Breath" and "Pocketful of Stone". The beautifully recorded album has a relaxed theme, with slow tempos and a lot of space in between. Gilmour has made a conscious effort in composing music that the listeners can enjoy after a hard day at work and listen to while sipping wine.
