Learn how to play this classic song by Pink Floyd from their 1973 album Dark Side Of The Moon.

The song is slow-paced and rich in texture, and features Gilmour playing the lush electric guitar with a Uni-Vibe and lap steel guitar with a volume pedal and several overdubs.

On the original album, it is a separate track from “Speak to Me”, the sound collage that opens the first side. Since this track segues into “Breathe” via a sustained backwards piano chord, the two are conjoined on most CD versions of the album.

A one-minute reprise features at the end of the song “Time”, without the slide guitar and using Farfisa organ and Wurlitzer electric piano in place of Hammond organ and Rhodes piano.
