Guitarra Total

David on the cover of Guitarra Total magazineSpanish magazine, Guitarra Total, has a six-page article about our David. Or his increasingly famous black Strat, to be more precise.

It’s available to buy, should you require your own glossy copy, in Spain, Portugal and Mexico.

If your Spanish is up to it, or if you just like looking at the pictures, please click the magazine cover.

Many thanks to Manel for kindly scanning and sending this article.

The chatroom is closed today, but will be open tomorrow between 09:00 and 11:00 (UK).

Don’t forget that part of ‘Remember That Night’ is on 3sat this afternoon…

And, as I know you’re wondering, I’m sorry to say that there is still no update on the Signature Strat. When there is one, details will be here ASAP.

  1. Hi fed,

    bad luck mate.

    i was sitting at college, refreshing the bbc sport page every 30 seconds, was delighted when liverpool scored.

    raced home to watch the last few mins – only to find it was on bloody sky :p and my gf doesnt have sky.

    so i had to get the laptop out and put on 5 live. needless to say it went off not long after.

    there’s always the hope that the mancs will demolish them in moscow..

    [I’d get as much pleasure out of that as I would from chewing off my own foot, but I hear you. (Can’t they both lose?) – FEd]

  2. Mucho Gracias, Manel (hope it’s correct).

    Nice to see the contribution to the site/blog of fans from all over the world!

  3. Why is his name just ‘GILMO’ on the cover?

    The ‘U’ and ‘R’ are partially obscured by something! 😉

    … In text speak it could be read as ‘David Gilmour U R Pink Floyd’ 😉

    yeah, i know what you mean.. you never know though, if man utd win, fergie might bugger off… every cloud.

  5. Fed…

    Console yourself with the RBS Six Nations Grand Slam DVD… Rugby games have video playback to help with difficult decisions thus reducing bad decisions to a minimum… marvellous what technology can do!

    Did I mention the fact that Wales won it this year? Second time in four years… well, well…

    Good to see that DG continues to grace guitar magazine covers…

  6. The link provided does not seem to lead to the issue that includes David. It led to other issues, though, with cool pics of some guitars and their players.

    [The link’s only included to be polite. Read the article for free in the Press section. – FEd]

  7. It’s too bad I don’t speak or read Spanish.

    It’s also too bad I wont be awake at 4-6am in the morning to get to the chat room over here in the States. Yay for time differences.

    Maybe one of these days I’ll get there, now that I’m almost done for the semester.

    Later ^^

  8. Hi fed

    I have to admit i love Genesis. But would you agree they have nicked David’s idea for a q&a and film of their recent tour?

    [Oh, isn’t that what everyone does in the music industry: steal someone else’s idea? – FEd]

  9. “Can’t they both lose?”

    F’ed, F’ed, F’ed ….

    The choice is simple … it’s like Star Wars, the Jedi Knights play in red, Darth Vader and his force of darkness play in blue ….

    Just don’t let Ronaldo near anyone holding an umbrella … this is Roman’s town after all ….

    …or go to the Press Page and read the March 2008 ‘Guitar and Bass Magazine’ article in English by the same reporter, Rick Batey…the ‘Guitarra Total’ article seems to be a direct translation for our Spanish-speaking friends…

  11. I was pulling for the Reds, heck, it’s still the U.K. in the final game though. Gotta like that anyway.

    Nice mag shot of David today with Blackie and all.

  12. Muy Bien y Gracias! Manel.

    I know just a few words in Spanish to get by for being a Miami resident. I am still struggling with English, lol.

    A few nice pictures of David Gilmour, the picture on the second last page is rare and who’s the other musician on the picture? Does anyone know?

    [That’s Mick Ralphs, best known for his work with Mott The Hoople and Bad Company. He toured with David in 1984. – FEd]

  13. Muchas gracias Manel! La photografia de David es muy linda. Quien la toma?

  15. David, if you are reading this, please come to India. There is a HUGE population waiting for you.

    My life is never going to be full without watching you live! At least once. Soon David.

    Godspeed!

  16. to manel and angelo: thanks for sharing this.

    to fed: hope to catch you in chat on thursday. will you be back for that or are you taking a proper holiday?

    [Oh yes, I wouldn’t miss that. (What’s a proper holiday? Only students and teachers have those, don’t they?)- FEd]

  17. [What’s a proper holiday? Only students and teachers have those, don’t they? – FEd]

    Yeah, yeah … green with envy, once again ? It’s not Radiohead this time …

    Michèle

    [I do miss those long holidays… – FEd]

  18. [What’s a proper holiday? Only students and teachers have those, don’t they? – FEd]

    It is nice having a month off in the summer but then it is really hard to get back into the habit of going to school and paying attention and having to do work after having all that time off. Teachers get it much better than students anyway, they set work but never seem to mark any of it over the holidays.

    Hope your long weekend break was good, did you get the good weather too?

    [I did. It’s been beautiful. – FEd]

  19. to fed: only students and teachers have proper hols, but you could always take a week off if you wanted to. i bet you’ve never done that and have weeks owing to you, maybe months.

    [No doubt about it. (Are you trying to get rid of me?) – FEd]

  20. Sin importar de qué trata este foro, quiero dar las gracias a David por entregarle melodías a un hombre que quise mucho y fué parte importante de mi vida, mi tío Carlos, quién falleció hace un mes y algo más.

    Hoy escucho tu música gracias a el, y no sabes la tranquilidad que me brinda.

    Un abrazo desde Chile.

    Felipe.
