The Pink Floyd Money tab solo consists of three parts and contains contrasts which makes it very much a lively solo. The Pink Floyd Money tab is three choruses of 24-bar blues played in B minor. The hardest skill about playing this solo would be the speed and how long to hold particular notes and the timing of the bends. The notes are quite simple but it requires good tone from your own fingers but the best thing for this is time and practice and naturally you will improve.

David Gilmour used a Fender Strat in the first part of the solo. The third and final parts of the Money solo was played using a Lewis 24 fret guitar which allowed Gilmour to reach the very high frets that are not contained on a Fender Stratocaster.

This Solo contains a high pitched sound with distortion. And the tone on each of the three parts are different. The first part uses delay and a high pitched tone. The following parts comes away from the high pitch and delay and gives a very dry sound. You can mix and match these tones between your amp and effects processor if you have one.

Ok lets kick off....This great Pink Floyd Money guitar solo starts just after the saxophone solo about 3:05 into the song. I will now help you with playing the solo by explaining the tabbed diagrams to make it easier where need be.

Start off the solo with a bend on the 9th fret and then release by playing a note on the 7th fret with some vibrato, all on the 3rd string. Then perform a bend on the 10th fret, 2nd string. This is a longer bend so hold it for around 2 seconds. Next, perform the same two starting notes again. The solo then heads slightly higher up the fret board. So start this off by a slide up to the 12th fret.

After playing around the 12th fret area, the solo goes back to the 7th and 9th position playing the same notes and techniques as before. When you get to the 10th fret play this twice before hammering on the 12th fret, 2nd string. Then play the 10th fret, 1st string, hit the 12th fret twice on the same string and then bend the string up a full tone-bend and release the string down again.

The solo carries on around the 12 fret. Play the note on the 12th fret, 2nd string  twice and then hit the 10th fret, 1st string. After perform the same bend at the 12th fret as before with a full tone-bend.... Arriving at the 10th fret, 2nd string, perform a quarter bend here. This is a very small bend and perform it delicately with your index finger by slightly pushing the string down.
