About this tab version
I see there's another version, which is just the chords. This is the lead guitar tabs, which I've added a comment in the tabs. Was this info helpful? Yes No
David Gilmour - Where We Start (studio version)
On an Island

Gilmour uses a classic Gretsch Duo Jet using his fingers/thumb instead of a pick. I used my strat in the n/m 
position and got a similar tone (no pick). Fairly clean (a little drive for sustain), I used a little reverb, 
and a small amount of delay.

There is another version on here with the chords, this is the lead guitar. The solos are pretty 
spot on, as are the fills. However, some of the fills could use some more improvisation.
