Our legendary guitar solo of the day is the solo performed in "ON AN ISLAND" by the legendary guitarist Mr. DAVID GILMOUR. "On an Island" is the second song and title track from David Gilmour's third solo album, On an Island. It segues from the previous track, Castellorizon, and is very placid in nature. It was released as a preview of the album some weeks prior to the album's official release. The song is both based on a night Gilmour spent on the Greek island of Kastelorizo, as well as being about remembering and honouring those who have died. It, like the entirety of the album of the same name, was performed live during David's 2006 tour and appears on the official tour DVD Remember That Night. The song features the backing vocals of David Crosby and Graham Nash, of Crosby, Stills and Nash fame. Gilmour wrote six of these ten tunes with his wife, Polly Samson, who also plays a bit of piano and sings. This song is a great work of art, mentally, physically, and most important, musically. it sends chills up and down my spine. The harmony gave me goosebumps. This song could have numerous meanings but it was Gilmour himself who said that the song was about "memories" and how after death we are still remembered as though we were still alive. A gorgeous and delicate combination of instrumentals and soul-soothing track, proving that David is the real deal! Such a brilliant guitarist, knowing exactly how to both calm your soul and make it fly at the same time. It has the feel of taking place between twilight and dawn. David’s second solo on the song just sounding epic, brilliant solo.
He is simply one of the best guitar soloists in the world, and his influence lives on today. #davidgilmour #guitarist #onanisland #rickwright #nickmason #rogerwaters #pinkfloyd #grahamnash #davidcrosby #pollysamson #guypratt #philmanzanera #wishyouwerehere #greatguitarist #greatmusician #guitars #guitarsdaily #guitarporn #guitargod #guitarspotter #fenderstratocaster #fenderguitars #psychedelicrock #guitar #progressiverock #bluesrock #artrock #rocklegend #rockguitarist #rockgod
