On the opening track, Shine On You Crazy Diamond parts 1-5, the first we hear of Gilmour's Strat is a delicate slow piece above the atmospheric keyboards of Richard Wright. The Strat sounds absolutely beautiful with a clean rounded tone and hardly any sound of the pick on the string. Here's the problem: I have tried and tried to replicate it but cannot get rid of the percussive sound of the pick on the strings no matter how delicately I play or which pickup I use. Even playing with my thumb (skin not nail) the brush of my thumb on the string is intrusive. I have tried rolling off the tone but this muffles the clear tone too much. Can anybody offer advice? Thanks in advance. I am playing through Amplitube 4 and high-quality headphones as I am unable to play through an amp due to my domestic situation.
