Castellorizon

I've been working on "Castellorizon," the first track from David Gilmour's On an Island.  I don't know why it took me so long to get around to doing it.  It's a beautiful instrumental piece with some of the most mind-blowing sustain ever.  That's saying something, given how awesome David Gilmour's sustain always is.



The live version is stunning, though it has its differences from the studio version.  In particular, the studio version has this absolutely stunning 3-measure-long multiple-bend-and-release on the second string, plus a really cool pinch harmonic lick that I still can't get quite right.

Either way, enjoy.
