On An Island Guitar Lesson – David Gilmour

In this On An Island guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this great song from David Gilmour in it's entirety.

The tuning is standard tuning, E A D G B E.

I will begin the video lesson by going through all of the chord progressions on acoustic guitar, in the order that each progression appears on the original recording. There are some really beautiful chord progressions here, that can serve as great vehicles to solo over.

That brings me to David Gilmour's epic guitar solos for "On An Island".

For those solos, I will switch to my strat and demonstrate how to play each solo note-for-note. "On An Island" contains some of my favorite playing of David's, I think you will agree with me after learning it. He is truly the KING of melody.

Have fun learning this beautiful song by the great David Gilmour! Carl...
