Yours forever with lifetime updates
Every technical nuance is taught, from a change in pick angle to a different bending position for unison bends.
When you struggle to sound like your guitar heroes (in this instance, David Gilmour) it’s not fully down to your equipment.
All the tiny technical nuances that guitarists place into their playing are being missed, more than likely, because you’re not aware of them. You’re only hearing them, but not quite understanding how to get those same sounds, Many people state “it’s in the fingers!”
In my private 1 – 1 lessons, I don’t like to leave any stone unturned.
So the same approach has been taken with this course. Anything I hear, feel or just do, I scrupulously analyze to better help you, my students.
In 1 – 1 lessons you won’t approach this whole song within 1 hour, it’ll really take months and more than likely years of lessons to learn every technique David has implemented into this 7 minute masterpiece.
The tab alone has taken me 2 – 4 weeks to transcribe, the backing track another 4/5 weeks to make/program, so I wouldn’t have the opportunity to offer something so comprehensive in private lessons alone.
I teach to both cameras like I would to you in a lesson with me, but because I have no questions being fired at me and distracting the workflow, I have the chance to explain in full depth what I’m doing, what I see David Gilmour is doing, what will get you certain sounds, certain control of your fingers and generally raise the game of your guitar playing for everything you approach in the future.
Better yet, you can rewind and replay every tip until you fully understand what’s going on.
The video lessons are around the 5 – 10 minute mark. We take around 2 bars at a time and I show you every bit about those 2 bars.
Then you have the slowed down play throughs at the end will hone your timing/feel, and you have the tab on screen throughout, so you can practice in your hotel room after a meeting, or on a lunch break at work on your phone, ipad or laptop.
So this now only leaves one comparison to 1 – 1 lessons: your feedback and questions.
How can you ask me questions?
In the dedicated forum of course!
Upload your performances of a few bars or even the whole piece and, ask questions if you don’t understand any sections.
You will be heard, you will be helped, and with our friendly community we will guide you through.
This is a complicated song that beginners can approach.
You will learn so much so early on in your playing, and habits will be formed which will last you the lifetime of your guitar journey.
Whether you opt for pedals, have effects built into your amp, or use some kind of amp software, you can get very close to David Gilmour Coming Back To LIfe Live At Pompeii tone.
I use the Yamaha THR to provide you with settings for effects, amps & cabs on a budget.
Then if you like your valve amps & use individual pedals, I show you my approach to matching what you hear & what kind of pedals you’ll need.
There’s also a guide included on what David Gilmour is using live!
Tabs are great for showing you which notes to play and where, but when it comes to pick angles, bending techniques or vibrato types, they quickly fall short.
Not only do you get my transcription/tab for Coming Back To Life – David Gilmour Live At Pompeii, but the videos keep the tab on screen so you’re free to practice on your phone/tablet or computer.
Every note is guided with the most intricate of detail to help you master the song!
It’s said that great tone is in the fingers, but why and how?
From vibrato to pressure and hand angles, pick adjustments to volume and pickup selection, as an electric guitarist, every touch impacts your sound.
I breakdown signatory techniques, such as tone and a half bends, vibrato arm dips, pick angle attack, what pickup position to use, what level to have your guitar volume at and more.
There’s nothing more frustrating than playing through a part perfectly only to find it falls apart when you play with the original track or the backing.
Timing is also one of the biggest challenges when learning lead lines/solos, so at the end of every lesson we have a speed trainer of my performance of Coming Back to Life by David Gilmour.
The piece of tab you’ve learnt in the lesson is played with a guide (the pick symbol in the picture to the right) at different speeds, starting at 50% making its way to 100% so you can nail every bar!
The guitar tab – oh how we hate ‘wrong’ tabs!
I have slowed down the original Coming Back To Life Live At Pompeii recording to nail every single note David is playing and watched the live performance countless times to see exactly where David is playing it.
Vibrato, Slides, Vibrato arm dips, bends, tone and a half bends – everything is there so you can follow confidently along.
I would highly recommend for you to print your PDF copy to follow along with this course and make any notes/scribbles you need to.
An accurate backing track is included too!
This is downloadable in mp3 format with everything in there except David’s vocals (feel free to singalong for yourself though!)
There’s also a count in so you know when to start, then you’re on your own performing just like David Gilmour himself.
It’s also a good idea to use this backing track to improvise over with the bonus theory and improv section in this course!
The rhythm parts for Coming Back To Life are also worth learning.
David adds percussive stabs to his lead playing, so every part of this is covered in vast detail.
Chester’s rhythm bits and the rhythm parts in David’s vocal sections will also be included. Right now we are still working on the post production of these, but the charts are there for you to get started with the chord shapes.
We’ve even included lessons to help with changing and holding the barre chords themselves!
Our main goal with the guitar course for learning how to play Coming Back To Life David Gilmour, Live At Pompeii 2016 has been to make it accessible to all.
In theory, you can learn to play guitar from anything. Ideally you’ll choose songs you like, songs that will make you want to pick up your guitar and play.
As long as you take your time to break down the songs you are learning, you can really start with some advanced sounding pieces very early on.
We wanted beginners to be able to start learning guitar with ‘Coming Back To Life Live At Pompeii’ so you will find Lessons & their modules taken down to bitesize one or two bar measures at a time, with all the intricate detailing of David Gilmour’s playing explained in explicit detail.
If by any chance you do get stuck on any section, lesson, bar, note or technique, then you should use our forum to get in touch with our other students or myself to provide you with answers and feedback.
This support is forever; We want to build a friendly, passionate community of guitarists to help, encourage and inspire each other – join in!
You’ve learnt the vibrato, the tone and a half controlled bends, even nailed the tone!
So it makes sense to now really learn what music is all about.
We’ve thrown in a bonus theory and improvisation course to help you get the most out of your course.
Just like having private lessons with me, I would encourage you to take a look at how the solo was constructed and take your time to play your own version with practical bitesize theory and scale applications.
You will come out of this course understanding how to improvise. What’s more, this will translate into all aspects of your playing, whether it’s in bands, jamming with friends or soloing over other songs and backing tracks. So don’t miss out, make the most of this free bonus!
