David Gilmour Quotes
I mean, I have moments of huge frustration because of my inability to express myself linguistically as clearly as I would like to.

I don't have a very disciplined approach to practicing or anything, but I do tend to have a guitar around most of the time, which I strum on most of the day.
I don't want to be a full-time member of Pink Floyd all my life.
I just play intuitively and work the same way in the studio. I don't have any magical effects or anything that helps me to get my particular sound.
