im a fairly new guitarist. i dont have that many skills yet. and lately ive jsut been fiddling around. my favorite band is floyd and ive been learning some songs slowly. i have a few effects so playing some songs isnt that bad(i.e- run like hell.) but im jut wondering if there are any severly easy floyd tunes that will help me train my self to be abetter guitarist. i know how to play the opening riff to wish you were here, intersteller overdrive. i can play one of the few, run like hell. most of in the flesh. set the controls and a few others. any one care to help?

Here, I can help you get started. "Time" from 'Dark Side of the Moon'.

Through the verse, use these:
F # m
A

E

And then through the chorus use:
D 5
A
C # m7
B m7

E


Peace - Anthony.

some of the chords to the Dark Side of the Moon songs are not too bad to figure out (dont have the chords at moment).

"Welcome to the Machine" (is that the name of it?) is pretty easy from Wish You Were Hear. and some of the other songs on that album too.

i used to be able to play along to most of Dark Side or Wish You Were Here.....just never wrote all the chords down.

One of the first songs I learned to play, and probably my all time favorite songs in the world, is "Wish You Were Here."
Get a hold of the tab and check it out, pretty easy.

You picked a good teacher in Dave Gilmour, the man can bend a string like no other. As for easy Floyd songs most of breathe is Em9 and A. strum the the Em9 from high E to bottom, if you want the fills i'll tab 'em for you but it might take a while.
Em9










The intro of in the flesh is based on the Em scale in 12/8 time







then inverted 5ths
G5
D5
E5

then the fill is
bend the 1st, 5th and 9th notes of the fill 1 full step and the 17 a half step. I was going to tab bits of the wall solo to show you the string bends but i just found out i cant notate them in this. if you want the tab i will scan and email it to you if you want. good luck
Richard.

I will have to agree with the others David Gilmoure is the MAN! when it comes to making the guitar talk. You could not have picked a better player to Study. Try you hand at comfortably numb, it's not has hard as you might think.

You can't go wrong with Floyd...

Try "another brick in the wall II"

Dm, G, F, C, Dm...

Ok, in case you do not know how to play these chords here are the diagrams in the same order:
Dm
G
F
C
