Our legendary guitar solo of the day is the solo performed in "SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMOND" by the legendary guitarist Mr. DAVID GILMOUR. "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" is a nine-part Pink Floyd composition written by David Gilmour, Roger Waters, and Rick Wright. It appeared on Pink Floyd's 1975 concept album Wish You Were Here. The song was conceived and written as a tribute and remembrance to their former band member Syd Barrett; the title of the song itself can also be seen as a reference to Barrett (Shine On You Crazy Diamond). The part I begins with the fade-in of a dense G-minor synthesizer pad.This is followed by Wright's Minimoog passages followed by a lengthy, bluesy guitar solo played by Gilmour on a Fender Stratocaster. The harmony changes from G minor to D minor, then to C minor, and back to G minor. Part II begins with a four-note theme (B♭, F, G, E) (known informally as "Syd's theme") . The chord leads back to G minor (as from Part I), followed by E♭ major and D major back to a coda from G minor. This part includes another solo by Gilmour. Part III begins with a Minimoog solo by Wright. This part includes Gilmour's third guitar solo, in the G natural minor scale, and ends with a fade into Part IV. Part Waters sings his lyrics, with Gilmour, Wright and female backing vocalists. Part V Part IV is followed by two guitars repeating an arpeggio variation on the main theme for about a minute with the theme of Part II. A baritone saxophone overlays the sounds, played by Dick Parry.
