Key and Scales Info

This Another Brick In The Wall part 2 tab is based around D minor with added notes through the use of Dave's large bends!

I have already given you the scale that this solo is played in which is based around D minor Pentatonic. Having been given this scale you will be able to play this solo with any notes within this scale at any combination should sound good enough. TOP TIP: target the root notes!! I will go through all this in more detail in the guitar riffs page. Now, the best thing to do is play these notes in between the main riffs that David Gilmour uses in the original Another Brick In The Wall solo. The ones I will provide for you below. Let these riffs get you started and inspire you to new phrases!To be a true rock legend, you'll have to regularly spend time practising.

Another Brick in the Wall Part 2 tab: 1

The Another Brick In The Wall tab starts off with a great lick that is instantly recognisable. There is no better way to start off this solo. This solo makes use of the D minor Pentatonic with the notes consisting of (D F G A C).

The 2 notes at the 10th fret string one and two are played using legato which involves you rolling your index downwards from the 2nd to the 1st string before bending the 2nd string up at the 13th fret. Use a lot of vibrato whilst you are bending the string.

The last part involves some double stops here on the 10th fret. You hit both notes on both strings simultaneously. Also some slightly complex string bends. That's Dave Gilmour specialty!! With this series of bends you only need to pluck the string once, the rest of the work is done using your left hand.

Part 2 begins with some slides and also contains many double stops mostly on the 10th fret.

 

Another Brick in the Wall Part 2 tab: 3

This section is a bit unique it starts off with a string rake and then a full string bend on the 13th fret. Careful how you release the bend, make sure that you release the bend slowly back down. On the final bend this is a little tricky, perform a full string bend on the 13th fret, then bring it back down and repeat the bend again, hold that bend and perform a half bend on top of that. Then, release that bend and then perform another bend followed by some vibrato.

Here contains many string pull-offs and also a double string pull-off on the 12th fret.

Here, on the final bend at the 13th fret bend the string and then release the bend slowly, bend it again, without releasing it, perform another bend on top of that like the previous and then release the bends whilst adding some vibrato at the end. Typical Gilmour!

 

Another Brick in the Wall Part 2 tab: 6

Here you have a quadruple bend  on the second bend at the 15th fret. This is not difficult having performed the most difficult bends so far. All you have to do is bend the string at the 15th fret release and then do this three more times, and finally bend the string again, this time hold the bend and don't release it and add some bending vibrato. Again typical Gilmour!

 

Another Brick in the Wall Part 2 tab: 7

Here you have a quarter bend. You only need to bend the string ever so slightly. Towards the end of this part you have to perform some double slides sliding up the fret board 2 frets up so you have to use two fingers. Each slide is two frets apart.

 

Another Brick in the Wall Part 2 tab: 8

Ok, you are reaching the end of this crazy solo. But you have to demonstrate some string muting preferably palm muting where you mute the strings with your right hand. This is slightly advanced and is not absolutely essential, but hey, Have a go!
