Here’s a great clip of Pink Floyd guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour performing “Breathe” acoustically.

As the second track on Floyd’s epic LP Dark Side of the Moon (the album opens up with the “Speak to Me” sound collage), this acoustic rendition is a great way to watch Gilmour’s chord progression and hear the lyrics clearly.

Dark Side of the Moon was Pink Floyd’s eighth studio album, released this month in 1973. It is the band’s best-selling album, and one of the best-selling albums in music history.

David Gilmour recently announced a new solo album and tour dates, his first in nine years. For full details, go to www.davidgilmour.com.

Last year, Pink Floyd released their final album The Endless River, which hit the Number 1 chart position in 21 countries around the world, and was one of the UK's Top 10 best-selling albums of 2014. More information on the band can be found at www.pinkfloyd.com.
