7 Things You Should Love About Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour

2. HE IS LAZY…

About practicing guitar. Let’s face it: a lot of us are lazy about many things. Even those things that we are good at. I’m lazy about cooking, especially when there’s a microwave within a five mile radius. Now, nobody can say that David Gilmour isn’t passionate about his music. But practicing? That’s no fun. At least when it comes to things like doing scale repetitions. To the extent that he does practice, it is a much more intuitive, exploratory kind.  Gilmour is lucky. I would probably have to do a million repetitions of the pentatonic scale before I could make solos sound good. Gilmour just has oodles of natural talent. So he can probably dispense with the scales and such anyway.
