Shine on you crazy diamond - Meltdown SOS
This is my take on created David Gilmour’s Sound on Sound as heard on the Meltdown concert. This patch was created using my Strat not an acoustic. I set the pickups to Neck/Middle. The signal is split, path A is the lead, path B is the backing sound. The lead is pretty straight forward with a HiWatt, phaser, and echo. The backing goes to a tube comp, and rotary. The comp I use to control the volume. Note: The volume pedal only goes from 0 to 17% this makes it easier to control the max volume. Adjust this if the backing is to low or too loud. How to use: Set your expression pedal to zero (heal). Then switch to patch. Strike a chord (Gm) let it ring a split second then move the pedal all the way to the toe position then back. The timing on the movement is everything. Too fast and it will wobble too much. If you do not bring the pedal back to heal then any notes played will build on the chord already struck. Switches FS2 – Delay – Lead Path FS3 – Phaser – Lead Path FS4 – Reverb – Both Paths If you plan to strum some chords then turn the delay off. Thanks to AndyHolt. I used his HD500 patch and built on it. Good luck!
