    Hey everyone! First post here.

    Over the holidays I picked up a DG signature that I've been playing nonstop ever since. She's absolutely inspirational to hold, best Strat I've ever played. Thought I'd introduce her to the world with a cover of the song that started my love of Pink Floyd!

    SofaB, guy, had I not known better, I could have been easily fooled into thinking that was Gilmour playing. Fantastic Job, and thanks for the review, welcome to the forum.

    Just superb playing and tone - ive been working on the same song but you’re just on a different level.

    Cheers! I'm using an Axe-Fx II XL for everything. The intro solo is just DI from the guitar with some studio compression and reverb/delay, everything else is a Hiwatt DR103 sim with an IR of a 4x12 WEM Starfinder with Fanes. I used a Vox Tone Bender sim for the two bridge solos, and a sim of a vintage MXR Phase 90 for the Shine On riff and the final solo. I slapped just a little bit of studio compression on the neck portion of the second solo. Hope that's useful!

    That means a lot to me! Thank you, so glad you enjoyed!!
