Some of my internet mates know that I've been working on a fingerstyle cover of the whole album "Dark Side of the Moon" for longer than a care to mention, with no real update since 2014. I've further enhanced "Breathe", gone backwards on "Any Colour You Like" and "Great Gig in the Sky", the rest are largely the same. I decided to sit down and play them all back to back for the camera, even though some aren't finished. But most importantly, I have begun documenting the work in MuseScore. Only scatterings of tabs currently exist, it's mostly in my head. One day I'd like to have a book/video. There is a good chance that will never happen, but if all the songs are documented then it wasn't all a waste of time :-)
Se here you go. I messed up quite a few times; it is hard to play continously for 19 minutes without bungles. Much of the work isn't yet done. But that's why this is a "progress" video, not a "complete, done and dusted" video.
0:00 Speak to me. JAW can tap the guitar body!
0:10 Breathe. More freestyled now than just fingerpicked. Now features intro solo with an "innovative technique" I'm still trying to master, check it at 1:08
3:02 Time. Forgot what I was doing, pretty awful play through, I normally do a lot better. Sorry.
6:19 Breathe Reprise.
7:25 Great Gig in the Sky. Only the intro, been too long since I played the vocal part I didn't attempt.
8:36 Money. Still in progress, I need to make it more interesting than just the verse/chorus.
10:36 Us and Them. I can normally make the detuning to Drop D fit in nicer, and get it a bit more accurate. The pressure of the video camera.
13:40 Any Colour You Like. Forgot what I was doing again, this needs a lot of work, I almost shouldn't include it. "Progress".
14:55 Brain Damage. Occasional brain fart.
If you make it to the end here, have this kudos ribbon, and pop on a comment letting me know which bits didn't work for you (I have broad shoulders). Thanks!
