    This is a bit sparse on the technical details but still cool.



    For more details about his barge studio see Tape Op magazine.

    Excellent! TY for posting!

    My pals Colin and Paul played at DG's b'day party on the lawn next to that barge. Must have been a lot of fun!

    Do Colin and Paul play for The Australian Pink Floyd? I saw Aussie Floyd twice in the last year when they came through Orlando. They put on a fantastic show.

    BTW, David Gilmour is my all time favorite guitar player. Very tasteful player.

    David has mastered the Stratocaster tone in many ways. When I want to hear what a Strat can do, I like to listen to "Comfortably Numb". Of coarse, I realize that David has 1000 effects in his loops. But he always keeps that Strat tone entact.

    That would be the two pals I was talking about. They also play in this little obscure trio called El Vato.

    Imagine playing at DG's b'day party! No pressure there mate! :eek:

    I will be hanging out with these two blokes in August making a new CD. :cool: Best damn rhythm section I ever played with!

    I'm not sure what he used on the original recording, but I was 5th row center on one of the last tour shows
    and he broke out a Blackguard Tele for "Comfortably Numb"... :cool:

    Small world. Looking forward to hearing your new project, Arlo. I know you've got top notch players working with you. Those two know how to bring it.

    I saw Roger Waters last year and his lead guitar player worked a tele the whole gig. Sounded great on all the Pink Floyd classics.

    Did the Tele have a Bigsby whammy? If my memory is recalling correctly, I am sure I remember several bended notes on the recording.

    I'm thinking "no Bigsby" but it *was* a Pink Floyd show and it *was* 1994... :lol:

    I definitely remember him switching from the CAR Strat he used for most of the show to a Tele.

    Probably a reissue. I don't think he likes to take the old stuff on the road...
