Wish You Were Here
« on: June 02, 2006, 05:37:53 AM »

I'm trying to learn this song, but one thing I cannot figure is the strumming pattern during the singing parts. could someone please post the strumming pattern for this (I haven't been playing very long so I hope these sorts of things will begin to come naturally)

Floyd's? Its quite simple. I learned it by ear. They will, and soon. I just listened to it, played it, recorded it, listened to the song again, then listened to mine again and then played it better 'til I got it right.

not a question about how to play it but does anyone know why Shine On You Crazy diamond is shorter on the wish you were here c.d. than on the Echoes c.d.?

Because Echoes only deletes two portions (a middle one and the ending one) to make enough room for both of the vocal parts. I never got Echoes because of stupid sh*t like that.

W.Y.W.H. is Beautiful. Keep trying: I used to listen with those big, old headphones when learning a new song. Good Luck. ;)

One of the first songs I ever learnt on guitar. One of the first I played drums for in a band and deffo the first I ever recorded with a band.

Strumming advice....hmmm...Just close your eyes and feel it...it will come. ;)

Ditto. Though I like doing a hokey country version. (Danga dang dang. Mainly because hokey country seems to be the only style that suits my weedy toneless vocals  :) )
You're right about the strumming. My girlfriend is learning the guitar and has these books with strumming patterns (all well and good) and she's obsesses with having to sing every word on exactly the same strum as in the book - totally to the detriment of the feeling of the song. (if she says one more time "but the book says....)

Anybody ever notice they similarity of the intro to Van Morrison's "Listen to the Lion" (1974)?   I think the Floyd song is better--one of their best--and probably one of the greatest rock-and-roll songs.
