Thanks goes to Miles Clark for the mix Song: Shine On You Crazy Diamond Artist: Pink Floyd Album: Wish You Were Here (1975) Original Bass Player: Roger Waters Bass: Steinberger XP-2 Strings: D'Addario ESXL170 Nickel Wound Double Ball-End .45 .65 .80 .100 Sound: Digitech BP-8 Valve Preamp/Processer (Compressor, Preamp, Equalizer) Mixer: Phonic AM240 Camera: Canon FS200 Standard Tuning "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" is a nine-part Pink Floyd composition written by Roger Waters, Richard Wright and David Gilmour. It is a tribute to former band member Syd Barrett. The song was first performed on their 1974 French tour, and recorded for their 1975 concept album Wish You Were Here. The song was intended to be a side-long composition (like "Atom Heart Mother" and "Echoes"), but was ultimately split into two parts and used to bookend the album, with new material composed that was more relevant to this song, and to the situation in which the band found themselves "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", along with the rest of the album, was written about the band's former leader, Syd Barrett. The song is a suite of nine parts, that was originally planned to take up the first side of the LP. "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" was written at the same time as "You've Got to Be Crazy" ("Dogs") and "Raving and Drooling" ("Sheep"). The lyrics, apart from referring to Barrett, are also about music fame. The first verse speaks specifically about Barrett: Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun Shine on you crazy diamond Now there's that look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky Shine on you crazy diamond. • Roger Waters -- bass guitar, lead vocals, additional electric guitar on Part VIII • David Gilmour -- guitar, backing vocals, lap steel guitar, additional bass guitar on Part VI, EMS Synthi AKS • Richard Wright -- Hammond organ, ARP String Ensemble, Minimoog, clavinet and Fender Rhodes on Part VIII, Steinway piano on Parts III and IX, backing vocals, Bösendorfer piano on the multi-channel re-release.[7] • Nick Mason -- drums, percussion with: • Dick Parry -- baritone and tenor saxophones • Carlena Williams -- backing vocals • Venetta Fields -- backing vocals All audio and video segments remain the property of the original artists and publishing companies.

I never stop watching your vids and learn some of you songs that you put in on this site. You already played one for me and if you could remember "Overjoyed" that I request. If you don't mind if I request another one by the Righteous Brothers "I had Time in my life", I would really do appreciate it. Thank you so very much.

Constantine Isslamow
Thanks very much for the kind words and for watching my video. Cheers.
Lori A
Actually Constantine, as I watch this video, it's very clear that it takes a great deal of discipline to play Pink Floyd.
Lori A
Great cover as usual! Such a great sound your hands get out of that bass. Very nice! Impeccable timing.
Constantine Isslamow
Hi Dave. Great to see your smile. All is well. I find Roger Waters has the best bass lines that exhibit less is more. So easy to come in early or late and not get away with it. Cheers my friend.
Constantine Isslamow
Hi Ed. Thanks for stopping in. Can't wait to get past the next 2 video's so I can loose the stress. Not sure why but I guess it's because of the 1,000th video. Cheers my friend.
This is brilliant ! Your video helped me with my cover of this amazing song.
Subbed, very good work!
