David Gilmour - Most Amazing Guitarist Ever
by Joe Collins
Although Gilmour doesn't play using the most impressive techniques, or the quickest melodies, there is something about every single note he plays that grabs hold of your attention and shakes it to the very core. His solos are full of feeling, some dark and foreboding, some bright, some, like young lust, hard and rocky, but all powerful and totally original.
His style and stage presence is far beyond contempories like Hendrix - imagine - Hendrix onstage plays to the crowd as a showman, and the crowd responds accordingly. Gilmour would fill the Albert hall at least twice over and have everyone standing, or seated, in reverence, without needing to play backwards, left handed, right handed, upside down or with his guitar on fire.
I could write more - but there is no need. He quite simply is the most amazing guitarist ever.
