David Gilmour

David Gilmour is the long standing Pink Floyd guitarist known for stacking compressors to get that distinctive tone. He is truly one of the GGG’s – Great Guitar GOAT’s. With his emotive melodic lead work, soulful vocals, and atmospheric soundscapes, Gilmour helped shape the band's distinctive sound and became one of the most revered guitarists in the history of rock music.

Not only is David the Floyd lead guitarist but he is also singer, and songwriter for them.


Hits like "Comfortably Numb," "Wish You Were Here," and "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" showcase his mastery of the instrument and his ability to convey deep emotion through his music. Gilmour's innovative use of effects, expressive phrasing, and melodic sensibility have earned him widespread acclaim and recognition as a true guitar icon. Along with Brian May he is another British guitarist to be awarded a gong (a CBE) by the Queen (the real Queen).

The Floyd began as a psychedelic band in the hazy 1960’s. Fully immersed in druggy culture. David has only ever commented…

‘You know, once you've had that guitar up so loud on the stage, where you can lean back and volume will stop you from falling backward, that's a hard drug to kick.
