Total Guitar - David Gilmour special, July 2022Officially published in the UK yesterday (June 6th) is the new issue - cover date July 2022, issue 359 - of Total Guitar magazine, which majors on David Gilmour and Pink Floyd.

Over 23 well illustrated pages, with some shots we've not seen before, they trace Gilmour’s evolution as a guitarist via 20 classic Pink Floyd tracks – from 1969’s The Nile Song all the way through to Hey Hey Rise Up. Along the way, Gilmour’s genius in landmark songs such as Echoes, Breathe, Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb and Another Brick In The Wall is celebrated by a host of guitarists – Kirk Hammett, Matt Bellamy, Sophie Lloyd, Derek Trucks, Jon Gomm, Steve Rothery of Marillion, Geordie Greep of Black Midi and Stu Mackenzie of King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard.

Gilmour’s story of his life in Pink Floyd and beyond is told in his own words, and an insight into the guitarist’s creative process is provided in an exclusive interview with Bob Ezrin, producer of Floyd’s legendary double album The Wall and the last three albums of the band’s career. Finally, in an additional eight-page in-depth lesson, they profile the details of David’s playing technique. From his trademark wide-interval string bends to his melodic bluesy phrasing, they say they cover what you need to know to play like him.
