Instruments played on PF songs
Hi!

Does anybody know where I could find a list of every PF song with the instruments that were played on them? Particularly Rick's organs and keyboards, and I'd like to know what guitars Gilmour used as well



Thanks

Wikipedia. I'm serious; every song has a full & cited list.

Edit: Oops, didn't read well. Well, your need doesn't exist. Studio equipment is almost never made public. The best it gets is when Gilmour or Waters matter-of-factly mention an instrument during an interview.

RE: Instruments played on PF songs
on the 'dogs' solos DG plays a telecaster run through a leslie.
on 'run like hel'l DG plays a telecaster or his vintage broadcdaster with a delay or 2.
on 'ABITW' part 2 DG plays a gold top les paul with p 90 pick ups .
on 'sorrow' DG plays a fender strat with emg active pick ups. he later stopped using these b/c they are 'too fat', they don't sound like a 50's strat. with the clear high end on pole piece pickups.
on 'Money' he plays a full 2 octave guitar with humbuckers made by evans. It can be seen in use on the studio segments on PF in Pompeii.
On 'marooned' he uses a digitech whammy pedal to get those huge swoops & intervals.

on Great gig on the sky his lap steel is tuned to open g but he kept the high E as E and not D so as to be able to play minor chords too.
I play it on my new CD in standard tuning on a G and L tele on my knee.

Have a look at a site called Gilmourish. It'll tell what guitars, amplification and effects David used throughout his caree.

RE: Instruments played on PF songs
Thats not entirely correct.

The whole of animals was recorded on a telecaster with a gibson paf humbucker in the neck. using the old wall pdalboard while a new one was being made for the tour.

Run like hell was recorded with a Fender Baritone and 2 digital delays, One running in 4/4 and the other in 3/4.

The rythm section of ABITW Pt2 was done on a Fender Strat with serial number 0001.

Sorrow was recorded with a Steinberger guitar using a boss hm 2 it was then fed through Floyds live pa and mixed into the final track.
