In this Wish You Were Here lesson we are gonna break down all of the classic parts performed by David Gilmour on this classic Pink Floyd song.

Wish You Were Here is widely considered one of the greatest classic rock songs of all time and with good reason. It starts off with an instantly identifiable riff originally played on a 12-string recorded to sound like it is being played through a cheap car stereo.

From there Wish You Were Here develops into a song containing arpeggiated picking, chord strums, and a bunch of acoustic soloing.

In this I will show you not only the solo, but also the pedal steel guitar solo heard later in the tune. However, I will arrange this solo so you can play it just fine on a standard tuned acoustic guitar.

I will also tackle all the soloing David Gilmour does towards the end of the song while he is scat singing.

Overall, I think learning this classic Pink Floyd song will really help develop those acoustic soloing chops. It will certainly gets those calluses in shape.

Have fun guys! Carl..
