YAY! Someone on the forum agrees with me! I despise that song, only because of that hideous warbling. Musically, it's fine, and I like all the rest of Rick's songs. 8)

Maybe as a fitting tribute we could get a special mix of Great Gig with Clair Tory taken off! I'm sure the piano is still doing crucial things under there.

I've always thought there was scope for a version of Great Gig with the vocals replaced with a similiar guitar part done by a certain Mr Gilmour ...

How about he sings Wearing the Inside Out which was personal to Rick? Or perhaps Breakthrough?

Don't get me wrong, I am not one of those who dislikes the original - far from it - I just thought there might be scope to do something a little different as an homage to Rick

Okay. Then, you can almost entirely remove vocals in Audacity - check out tutorials at Youtube :)

Sure, can you also get in touch with David and ask him nicely to replace them with a similar sounding guitar part?

:shock: It might be not the best of him, but surely one of the best, and despising that shocks.

Great Gig in the Sky would have been a bit tasteless anyway. I'm glad David went for Remember A Day [-D-]

Great choice, and yes, I HAVE TO agree on Great Gig... only Rick has the right to play it...
